Chris Doleman makes the Hall of Fame

The NFC North will have one representative in the 2012 class of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Former Minnesota Vikings defensive end Chris Doleman was elected Saturday during the annual meeting of the Hall of Fame's selection committee in Indianapolis.

Congratulations to Chris, whose 150.5 career sacks rank fourth in NFL history. We'll have more on this developments, which brought another year of disappointment for former Vikings receiver Cris Carter, in a bit. Former Detroit Lions guard Dick Stanfel, a nominee of the Seniors Committee, did not garner enough votes for enshrinement.
