Broncos Great Tom Nalen Elected to the Ring of Fame

Nalen will be inducted on September 29th, 2013. - Denver Broncos

Fans of the Denver Broncos will have a new nameplate to admire next time they visit Mile High, Broncos great Tom Nalen has been inducted into the Ring of Fame.

Not bad for a guy born in Foxborough, Massachusetts...

Tom Nalen was a seventh round pick in 1994 by the Denver Broncos and participated in 14 seasons before announcing his retirement in January of 2007. The center showcased how the game is played in 192 games, with 188 starts (second only to John Elway in team history).

Nalen was a staple in a Broncos offensive line that lead the way to two Super Bowl victories, behind which there were 11 seasons of 1,000 yard rushers and more than 90, 100-yard games. The 395 sacks allowed during Nalen's reign were the third fewest in the NFL during that time span.

He went to five Pro Bowls (more than any Denver offensive lineman in history) and was an All-Pro three times in his career.

His ceremony will be held at half time during the Broncos home game against the Philadelphia Eagles on September 29th. Nalen becomes the 24th member of the Ring of Fame and the seventh from those Super Bowl teams.
