Chris Doleman To Be Inducted Into Minnesota Vikings Ring Of Honor

The Minnesota Vikings have selected the latest part of team history to be inducted into their Ring Of Honor. . .and, as always, it's a very deserving choice.

This year's inductee will be former Vikings' defensive end Chris Doleman, who spent two different stints with the Vikings (from 1985 to 1993, and then an encore in 1999), in addition to playing with the Atlanta Falcons and the San Francisco 49ers.

Doleman was selected by the Vikings with the fourth overall selection in the 1985 NFL Draft out of the University of Pittsburgh, and started 148 of his 154 career games in Minnesota. He holds the Vikings' all-time record for sacks in a single season with 21 in 1989, which is the third-highest total in NFL history, and currently ranks fourth in league history with 150.5 career sacks. 96.5 of those 150.5 sacks came as a member of the Minnesota Vikings, which gives him the second most in franchise history behind John Randle. He also holds the Vikings' record with 33 career forced fumbles.

Doleman will be inducted into the Ring of Honor at halftime of the Vikings' home game on October 23.

Congratulations to Chris Doleman on becoming an even more permanent part of Minnesota Vikings history!
