Former Buffalo Bills defensive end Bruce Smith was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday, and he'll be joined by long-time Bills owner Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. The pair of Bills headline a 2009 Hall of Fame class which includes former Steelers DB Rod Woodson, former Vikings OL Randall McDaniel, the late Derrick Thomas, a former Chiefs linebacker, and former Cowboys WR Bob Hayes.
In what is sure to be an unforgettable weekend for Bills fans this coming August, the current Bills will participate in the 2009 Hall of Fame Game against the Tennessee Titans. The first pre-season game of the 2009 NFL season will take place a day after Smith and Wilson are inducted at Canton, Ohio.
Congratulations to Bruce and Ralph!
