Jerome Bettis Elected To Pro Football Hall Of Fame

The Bus will finally arrive in Canton this summer. Former Steelers Running Back Jerome Bettis has been elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on his fifth attempt.

Bettis was with the Steelers for 10 years, and finished his career after winning Super Bowl XL. His 13,662 yards rushing yards were the 6th most in NFL history. He was a bruiser on the field who would get the tough yards, but was surprisingly nimble footed for such a big back. Over his career, he had 8 1,000 yard seasons (5th most in NFL history) and 61 100+ yard games (also 5th most in NFL history). 50 of those games were with the Steelers.

Bettis will be inducted into the Hall of Fame on Saturday, August 8th.
