Offensive lineman Gary Zimmerman has become the second Denver Broncos player to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Hailed by teammate John Elway as the best left tackle he ever saw play the game, Zimmerman spent five years with the Broncos and was on the team that beat the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XXXII.

Zimmerman said during his induction speech last night that he had a lot of sleepless nights before games because of the responsibility of protecting Elway. Zimmerman thanked Elway, the only other Bronco in the Hall of Fame, and said "it was worth every sleepless night."

Zimmerman played for the Minnesota Vikings from 1986-92 before he was traded to the Broncos in 1993.
