EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — When Chris Doleman first got the news that he was headed to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, he said he went numb.

It’s still sinking in nearly a week later.

The former Minnesota Vikings defensive end met with reporters Thursday for the first time since getting the big news. Doleman says he is humbled by the honor, but is “still trying to get a feel for what all this means.”

Doleman is fourth on the NFL’s career list with 150 1/2 sacks. He’s 21 sacks in 1989 stood as the Vikings single-season record until this season when Jared Allen broke it.

Doleman says it’s been a whirlwind since the announcement on Saturday. His son Evan will introduce him at the induction ceremony in August.
