Denver (CBS4) — Shannon Sharpe, former Denver Broncos tight end, is the 4th former Bronco to be elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  Sharpe was voted in Sunday in his third year of eligibility.

Sharpe retired as the league’s preeminent pass-catching tight end.  His numbers are staggering.  He finished his Hall of Fame career with 815 catches for more than 10,000 yards, he scored 62 touchdowns, and is the owner of three Super Bowl titles.

Sharpe joins John Elway, Gary Zimmerman and last year’s inductee Floyd Little as the only Broncos to receive the NFL’s highest honor.
