Vikings’ Great Steve Hutchinson Elected to Hall of Fame
Hutchinson will be enshrined in Canton, Ohio, in August after making the cut in his third year of eligibility. He played in the NFL from 2001 to 2012, spending half of his career in Purple with the Vikings from 2006 to 2011 -- after starting his run in the NFL in Seattle.
A member of the All-Decade Team of the 2000s, Hutchinson was a seven-time All-Pro selection (five-time First-Team All-Pro) and seven-time Pro Bowler who started all 169 games in which he played.
Hutchinson will be joined by safeties Troy Polamalu and Steve Atwater along with running back Edgerrin James, receiver Isaac Bruce.
