Saw that as well. One of the classic Lions.

RIP Alex.
Sadly, that was one of the things I thought, also. It's always sad to see posthumous inductions.

Very Sad News.

I think that the Gambling thing in 1963, when he got suspended for the year is part of the reason behind not getting into the Hall of Fame...

But Paul Hornung was also suspended for the 1963 season because of gambling and he is in the HOF.

Mr. Karras should be a Hall of Famer!
