Chris Doleman, who played for the San Francisco 49ers from 1996 to 1998, will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Former San Francisco 49ers defensive end Chris Doleman will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio on Saturday. The member of the NFL's 1990s All-Decade team played in San Francisco from 1996 to 1998.
Doleman collected 150.5 sacks in his carreer, good for fourth on the all-time NFL list. His best season came long before San Francisco, picking up 21 sacks in 1989. Still, he had enough left during his time in San Francisco to make the Pro Bowl as a member of the team in 1997.
Television coverage of the Induction Event will begin at 4 p.m. PT on ESPN and the NFL Network. The NFL Network will also have additional coverage leading up to the event starting at 1 p.m. PT.
