Dick LeBeau To Be Inducted Into Hall Of Fame Tonight

Tonight, the 2010 Pro Football Hall of Fame class will be enshrined in Canton, Ohio. One of the members of the class of 2010 is current Steelers defensive coordinator and former Lions great Dick LeBeau. In case you forgot what LeBeau did during his career with the Lions, here is a quick refresher:

LeBeau's career with the Lions began after he was cut by the Browns, which had originally selected him in the fifth round of the 1959 draft.  The Lions brought him in as a free agent and the rest is history.  LeBeau spent all 14 seasons of his career with the Lions and went on to become an outstanding cornerback.  He made the Pro Bowl from 1965-67 and finished his career with 62 interceptions, which is the third-most of any cornerback in league history.  Also, LeBeau holds the record for the most consecutive game appearances (171) by a cornerback.

The enshrinement ceremony begins at 7 p.m. ET tonight and can be seen on both ESPN and NFL Network. I believe LeBeau is scheduled to speak first, so he will help get the event started.

The other members of this year's Hall of Fame class are Jerry Rice, Russ Grimm, Rickey Jackson, Floyd Little, John Randle and Emmitt Smith.
