People may remember when John Elway refused to report the Baltimore Colts when he was selected first overall in 1983. Baltimore traded him to Denver, but it wasn’t all bad for the Colts as they received a future seven time Pro Bowler in return.
Baltimore would soon relocate to Indianapolis, and though the Colts weren’t very good at the time, Chris Hinton gave them a great piece to build an offensive line around. Later in his career as an Atlanta Falcon, he would continue his Pro Bowl ways and secure his first and only First Team All-Pro Selection in 1993.
Chris Hinton has the distinction of being the first man named to the Colts Ring of Honor who played his career (predominantly) in Indianapolis. It was an accolade that was well deserved.
