Former Hog Grimm Is A Finalist For The Hall Of Fame

Russ Grimm is one of 17 finalists up for induction into the NFL Hall of Fame this year.

Grimm was a guard on one of the most dominant offensive lines in history. He was an original member of the Hogs and won three Super Bowls with the team.

He was a three-time all-pro and is widely regarded as one the NFL's top guards.

Currently, Grimm is an assistant with the Arizona Cardinals and is respected for his blue-collar work ethic.

The voting for the new members takes place on Feb. 6th, the day before the Super Bowl. That will cap a big Super Bowl week in Miami, in which commissioner Roger Goodell will give a state of the NFL address and the NFL Pro Bowl will be played a week before the Big Game.

Jerry Rice, Tim Brown, Emmitt Smith, Chris Carter and Shannon Sharpe are some of the other big names in the running.
