On Thursday night, San Francisco 49ers legend Charles Haley was announced as one of the 15 finalists for election into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, according to CSN Bay Area. This year’s selection marks the sixth time that Haley has been named a finalist.
During his time in the NFL, Haley was a prolific pass-rusher and amassed 100.5 career sacks en route to five Pro Bowl appearances. Haley’s tenure on the 49ers was from 1986 to 1991 and 1999, when he rejoined the team for a season. He was a champion at the highest level and won five Super Bowl rings, two with the 49ers and three with the Dallas Cowboys.
Next month, on the eve of the Super Bowl, the selection committee will choose from four to eight members out of the remaining 15 finalists to induct as the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2015.
