He was voted as the greatest player never elected to the Hall of Fame in a special once on NFL Network, but finally on Saturday Jerry Kramer was bestowed with the highest honor in the game, as he was elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Kramer has long been one of the more controversial snubs when it came to the Hall of Fame. He played 11 seasons with the Packers, winning five titles in Green Bay during his tenure. Kramer was eligible for the Hall of Fame for the first time in 1973 and was a finalist a ridiculous 10 times. He was an All-Pro five times with Green Bay. Kramer was a two-time Super Bowl winner and a five-time NFL champion overall.

While he went in as a ‘senior selection,’ Kramer deserved the honor over most, playing an outstanding 11 seasons for the Packers, being part of five championship teams.

Joining Kramer in the class of 2018 are Brian Urlacher, Randy Moss, Terrell Owens, Brian Dawkins, and Ray Lewis, plus senior selection Robert Brazile and contributor Bobby Beathard.

The ceremony for Kramer and the class of 2018 will take place on Saturday, August 4th in Canton, Ohio.
