Another Steeler in the Hall of Fame

Fort Wayne native Rod Woodson, one of the best cornerbacks and safeties of all time, was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the NFL announced today.

While Woodson ended his career with the primarily the Ravens and Raiders, he spent his first 10 seasons in the league with the Steelers. He played in Super Bowl XXX while with the Steelers and won Super Bowl XXXV with the Ravens.

Woodson was one of the few players that distinguished himself at two defensive positions, corner and safety. He also was a quality return man. He was named an All-Pro at all three spots.

A highlight video is here. Congrats to Mr. Woodson. Your Fort Wayne fans are proud of you.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame is an empty honor if Richard Dent is not in it. Horrible news.
