    Hall of Fame defensive end Chris Doleman dies at age 58

    Hall of Fame defensive end Chris Doleman died Tuesday night after a battle with cancer, the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced in a statement. He was 58.

    "The entire Pro Football Hall of Fame family mourns the passing of Chris Doleman after a prolonged and courageous battle against cancer," said David Baker, the Hall of Fame's president and CEO. "I had the honor of getting to know him not only as a great football player but an outstanding human being. One of the honors of my life was witnessing Chris get baptized in the Jordan River during a Hall of Fame trip to Israel.

    "The legacy of Chris Doleman will live forever in Canton, Ohio, for generations to learn from how he lived a life of courage and character."

    Doleman played for the Minnesota Vikings from 1985 to 1993 and ended his career with the club in 1999.

    In 2018, he had surgery to remove a brain tumor.

    Oh man, very sad.

    I don't remember a lot about him from when he played other than he was a beast pass rusher.

          He was an absolute terror and if I'm not mistaken...one of the earliest face painters a la Jarred Allen?

              I saw him play a lot against duh bears, he was deserving of being in Canton.

              He and Randle were tough to play against. Glad we didn't get them often.

              RIP
