Jonathan Ogden 1st Of Class Of 2013 To Enter Hall Of Fame
As relaxed as if he had no one to block, Jonathan Ogden became the first Baltimore Raven enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Ogden was the leadoff inductee Saturday night in his seven-member class, just as he was the first player drafted by the Ravens after the franchise moved from Cleveland in 1996 and was renamed. The man who made that selection, fellow Hall of Famer Ozzie Newsome, now Baltimore's general manager, presented the massive offensive tackle.
Newsome was one of more than 120 hall members, a record, who returned to Fawcett Stadium for the festivities as the hall celebrates its 50th anniversary.
Ogden was a six-time All-Pro who made the Pro Bowl 11 times and was the main blocker when Jamal Lewis rushed for 2.066 yards in 2003.
''Talent isn't enough,'' Ogden said. ''A lot of people have talent, they don't always live up to it. For me it is about maximizing, striving for perfection.
''I am so proud to be the Baltimore Ravens' first Hall of Fame inductee.''
