Although sack specialist Chris Doleman never won a Super Bowl with the Minnesota Vikings, he did become one of the best defensive players of his time. Doleman was an 8-time Pro Bowl selection, a 3-time First-team All-Pro and now a member of Pro Football’s Hall of Fame.
During his induction speech he said, “Anything you want in life you can get through sacks. money, life, fame, women. He recalled his father’s mantra: “If dad signed you up for something, you had to finish it.” That’s how Chris played the game of football.
Doleman played most of his career with the Vikings and ranked fourth on the NFL’s all-time list with 150 1/2 sacks at the time of his retirement. He played 232 games in 15 seasons, also spending time with Atlanta and San Francisco.
What Doleman achieved through his career was eight Pro Bowl elections and three first-team All-Pro choices. He recorded 21 sacks in the 1989 season, and that was a single-season Vikings record until Jared Allen had 22 in 2011.
Corporations in Minnesota will now be looking to now hire the services of Chris Doleman for speaking engagements, autograph signings, VIP Meet & Greets and personal appearances.
