Former Redskins guard Russ Grimm first of “Hogs” inducted into Pro Football Hall of Fame

Former Redskins Hog Russ Grimm becomes the first Hog to make it to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Former Washington Redskins guard Russ Grimm is in Hog Heaven.

Grimm became the 18th member of the Redskins, and the fifth during the Joe Gibbs era, to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio Saturday.

Grimm played 11 seasons for the Redskins, winning three Super Bowls and appearing in four. He made four consecutive Pro Bowls, was named a three-time All-Pro, and was selected to the NFL’s All-Decade Team of the 1980s.

During his speech, Grimm thanked his fellow offensive linemen, the “Hogs.” He said, “I want to mention a few guys that made it possible for me to be here today. A group of guys that grew together, worked together, played together, raised families together, celebrated together, guys that I consider family, a group known as the Hogs.”
