CANTON, Ohio - Shannon Sharpe, among the most prolific tight ends the NFL has seen, has been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Sharpe won two Super Bowls with Denver and one with Baltimore as one of the best pass catchers at his position in league history. At the time of his retirement in 2003, his 815 career receptions, 10,060 yards and 62 TDs were all NFL records for a tight end, and three times he went over 1,000 yards receiving in a season—almost unheard of at that position.

In a 1993 playoff game, Sharpe had 13 catches against Oakland, tying a record.

Sharpe patted his bust on the head Saturday before saying, "All these years later, it makes me proud when people call me a self-made man."
