3 Lions legends are getting some long-overdue recognition.

Steelers V Lions

The ring around Ford Field honoring the best Detroit Lions in franchise history is about to get a little more crowded.

Just a few minutes before the Lions kicked off their 2018 preseason finale against the Cleveland Browns, the team announced they will be adding three more historic players to the “Pride of the Lions” ring of honor circling their home field.

Herman Moore, Roger Brown and Alex Karras will see their names enshrined at Ford Field during the team’s homecoming game against the Seattle Seahawks on October 28.

Those three join 15 other historic Lions players: Lem Barney, Jack Christiansen, Dutch Clark, Lou Creekmur, Jason Hanson, Dick “Night Train” Lane, Yale Lary, Bobby Layne, Dick LeBeau, Barry Sanders, Charlie Sanders, Joe Schmidt, Dick Stanfel, Doak Walker and Alex Wojciechowicz.

Team president Rod Wood offered the following formal statement on the three newest additions to the Pride of the Lions:

“Mrs. Ford, her family and the Detroit Lions organization are very excited to be recognizing three more of the best players to ever wear Honolulu blue and silver. Roger Brown, Alex Karras and Herman Moore each exemplified what it meant to be a Detroit Lion in their own unique way as players and teammates. All three of them are befitting of the greatest individual honor our organization can give to a Lions Legend.”

Congrats to the three newest additions! Well deserved!
