[Kansas City.com] It was worth the wait for former Chiefs defensive tackle Curley Culp.
Culp was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday, more than three decades after his playing days ended. Culp, a five-time Pro Bowler, was enshrined as a senior nominee.
“It gives me joy and inspiration that will last the rest of my life,” Culp said. “I am just overwhelmed by the struggles, joys and tears of those who made it here. I’m happy to join them in the Hall of Fame.”
Culp, one of the game’s most dominant defensive tackles for much of his 14 pro seasons, helped the Chiefs win Super Bowl IV. He also played for the Oilers and Lions.
