Rams News: Orlando Pace And Kevin Greene Elected To Pro Football Hall Of Fame

The NFL announced the 2016 Hall of Fame class, and two former Rams players are among the will be forever immortalized.

Offensive tackle Orlando Pace, who played 12 of his 13 years in the NFL with the St. Louis Rams, and linebacker Kevin Greene, who played his first eight seasons with the Los Angeles Rams will both be enshrined in Canton later this year, the Rams announced:

The Rams drafted Pace first overall in the 1997 draft out of Ohio State. In his 13-year career he went to seven Pro Bowls and was named an All-Pro five times, being named to the first team three times. Pace missed just nine games in his first nine seasons as a member of the Rams. He finished out his career playing one season with the Chicago Bears in 2009 before retiring at the age of 34.

Greene was drafted in 1985 by the Rams in the fifth round out of Auburn. Greene had 160 sacks in his career which ranks third all-time behind Bruce Smith and Reggie White. He set a career-high 16.5 sacks as a member of the Rams in 1988, and then matched it the next season. He also played with the Pittsburgh Steelers, San Francisco 49ers and had two stints with the Carolina Panthers before retiring after the 1999 season.

The duo joins Tony Dungy, Brett Favre, Marvin Harrison, Eddie DeBartolo Jr., Ken Stabler and Dick Stanfel as the 2016 inductees. The group will be enshrined in Canton this August.
