Curtis Martin to the Hall of Fame
Curtis Martin is headed to the Hall of Fame. He will be inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame on August 4th along with five other inductees. Cortez Kennedy, Chris Doleman, Dermontti Dawson, Jack Butler and Willie Roaf round out the Hall of Fame’s 2012 class.
The announcement was made live on the NFL Network on Saturday night in Indianapolis. From ESPN.com:
A panel of 44 media members voted. The inductions are in early August in Canton, Ohio.
Martin made it for his consistency and durability, rushing for 14,101 and 90 touchdowns. He rushed for at least 1,000 yards in each of his first 10 seasons, the first three with New England and the others with the Jets. The 1995 Offensive Rookie of the Year, Martin won the NFL rushing title in 2004 with 1,697 yards.
