Chris Doleman Goes Into The Ring Of Honor Today

The Minnesota Vikings will induct another individual into their "Ring of Honor" at halftime of today's game, and as we mentioned previously, it goes to a man that is incredibly deserving of the tribute.

Defensive end Chris Doleman will be inducted into the Ring of Honor this afternoon, becoming the 19th individual in team history to be so recognized.

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.
