INDIANAPOLIS — The celebration is not quite over yet for new Pro Football Hall of Fame members Peyton Manning and Edgerrin James.
The pair will receive their commemorative rings this Sunday when the Colts host the Los Angeles Rams at Lucas Oil Stadium.
James was selected for the Hall of Fame’s Class of 2020 while Manning earned induction as part of the Class of 2021. Both were formally enshrined in Canton, Ohio, in August.
James became the fourth Colts running back to be elected to the Hall of Fame, joining Lenny Moore, Eric Dickerson, and Marshall Faulk. James was selected by the Colts with the fourth overall pick of the 1999 Draft. He was inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor in 2012.
Manning is the second Colts quarterback to be selected to the Hall of Fame, joining Jonny Unitas. Manning was selected by the Colts with the first overall pick in the 1998 NFL Draft. He was a member of the Colts’ Super Bowl XLI victory and was inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor in 2017.
Over his 18-year career with Indianapolis and the Denver Broncos, Manning reset the NFL record book. He ranks in the top five in league history in every major passing statistic, including attempts (9,380, fourth), completions (6,125, fourth), yards (71,940, third), and touchdowns (539, third). Manning is the only five-time Most Valuable Player and his 14 Pro Bowls are tied for the most in league history.
