Zimmerman lone Viking to make Hall

The Vikings went 1-for-3 today as offensive tackle Gary Zimmerman was their only former player chosen for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Wide receiver Cris Carter and guard Randall McDaniel made the final 10 but were eliminated in the cutdown to five players.

Former Chiefs cornerback and Vikings defensive coordinator Emmitt Thomas made it as a senior committee nominee.

Zimmerman spent the first seven of his 12 NFL seasons with the Vikings, earning three Pro Bowl invitations.

Traded to Denver in 1993, he made the Pro Bowl four more times in five seasons with the Broncos and started at left tackle in their Super Bowl XXXII win over Green Bay.

Also selected for the induction Class of 2008 were: former Chargers and 49ers defensive end Fred Dean, former Redskins cornerback Darrell Green, former Redskins wide receiver Art Monk and former Patriots linebacker Andre Tippett.
