DALLAS (AP) - Fort Myers native Deion Sanders and Marshall Faulk lead a class of seven voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday.
Joining them are Shannon Sharpe, Richard Dent, Ed Sabol, Les Richter and Chris Hanburger.
Sanders, the outstanding cornerback/kick returner and sometime wide receiver known as "Prime Time" with five teams, is a two-time Super Bowl winner and Defensive Player of the Year in 1994.
Faulk won a Super Bowl with the 1999 Rams, was the 1994 Offensive Rookie of the Year, 2000 NFL MVP and a three-time Offensive Player of the Year (1999-2001).
Sharpe held league records for a tight end in receptions, yards and touchdowns when he retired in 2001.
Bears defensive end Dent was the MVP of the 1986 Super Bowl and finished with 137½ career sacks.
