Former St. Louis Rams quarterback Kurt Warner has been named as one of the seven members elected in the 2017 Pro Football Hall of Fame. LaDainian Tomlinson, Terrell Davis, Kenny Easley, Jason Taylor, Morton Anderson and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones will join Warner in this year’s class.
Warner had a “rags-to-riches” career. He is famous for working in a supermarket only to later step in as the Rams’ starting quarterback, and leading them to their first Super Bowl victory during Super Bowl XXXIV. Warner led one of the best offenses in NFL history that was dubbed, “The Greatest Show on Turf.”
Warner had a short stint with the New York Giants before ending his career with the Arizona Cardinals. During his time with the Cardinals, he managed to lead the team to Super Bowl XLIII where they lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Warner finished his 12-year career with 32,344 passing yards and 208 touchdowns. No matter which team Warner decides to be inducted in, he will always be synonymous with the Rams.
