Russ Grimm: From Redskins to Steelers to Cardinals to … Hall of Fame?

by Michael David Smith

TAMPA, Fla. -- Russ Grimm has more than the Super Bowl on his mind this week. Yes, as the Arizona Cardinals' assistant head coach, he's thinking mostly about getting his players ready for the Pittsburgh Steelers. But as a former Washington Redskins offensive lineman, he's also a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and he'll find out if he's been chosen on Saturday.

If you had asked me last week, I would have said Grimm was a long shot to get into the Hall of Fame. But in talking to Hall of Fame voters this week, I'm starting to get the feeling that Grimm's presence in Tampa as a coach is making some voters give a second look to his career as a player.
