Chris Doleman Hall Of Fame Speech: Former 49ers DE Keeps It Short And Sweet

On Saturday night, Chris Doleman was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton. Doleman spent the bulk of his career with the Minnesota Vikings, but played with the San Francisco 49ers from 1996 to 1998.

The eight-time Pro Bowl selection and member of the 100 Sacks Club was inducted into the Hall of Fame by his son, who helped him unveil his bust that will be enshrined.

Doleman got a lengthy round of applause for talking about his children and saying that he always tried to bring them up right. He had plenty of thanks to dole out to all of his former teams, teammates and coaches.

Doleman's speech was on the shorter side, especially compared to Seahawks great Cortez Kennedy, who gave an extended speech (although he kept the crowd entertained).
