Tom Nalen, a center who anchored one of the best offensive lines in NFL history, has been chosen as the next member of the Broncos’ Ring of Fame.

The Broncos announced today that Nalen will be formally inducted at halftime of the September 29 game against the Eagles.

Nalen was a seventh-round draft pick of the Broncos in 1994 and went on to be a two-time first-team All-Pro and a five-time Pro Bowler. During Nalen’s 13 seasons on the Broncos’ offensive line, they had a 1,000-yard rusher 11 times.

Nalen started every game of the Broncos’ back-to-back championship seasons in 1997 and 1998, and his 188 career starts are second only to John Elway in franchise history.
