Kevin Greene will be inducted into the 2016 Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Kevin Greene retired in 1999 and had to wait almost twenty years to get his name called into the Hall of Fame. It was certainly worth the wait, and he is most definitely deserving. Greene is one of the great sack masters of All-Time.

He ranks third on the All-Time list with 160 sacks. He trails only Reggie White and Bruce Smith, two of the best to ever do it. To get that far on the list, you have to consistently be one of the biggest threats in the NFL for an extended period of time. Greene reached double-digit sacks in 10 of his 15 NFL seasons. He also had back to back seasons with 16.5 sacks in 1988 and 1989.

His best seasons statistically were on the Rams, but his only two All-Pro seasons, and in three of his five Pro Bowls came in the black and gold of the Steelers. He also was on a vaunted Steelers defense that made the Super Bowl in the 1995 season.

After his NFL career, he became an outside linebacker coach for the Green Bay Packers from the 2009 season through 2013.
