Later that day, Hall of Famers FRED DEAN (Class of 2008), CHARLIE JOINER (Class of 1996) and RON MIX (Class of 1979) will be honored during halftime of the Los Angeles Chargers game against the Cleveland Browns, as they each will receive their new Ring of Excellence. The game is scheduled for 4:05 PM ET at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif.

The Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence is one of three iconic symbols that represent the elite status of being a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. All of the Hall of Famers received the Hall of Fame Gold Jacket and unveiled his Bronzed Bust during their respective Enshrinement Ceremonies.

As part of the partnership between the Hall of Fame and Kay® Jewelers, all living members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame will receive the new Ring of Excellence that was designed by Kay® Jewelers in 2013. At the conclusion of this season, every living Hall of Famer will have received the new Ring of Excellence.

EXCERPT FROM JASON TAYLOR’S ENSHRINEMENT SPEECH IN AUGUST

“To all the Gold Jackets here, my new forever teammates, thank you, sincerely, thank you for all you've done to pave the way. I've looked up to so many of you over the years. And this roster is spectacular, but there are nine guys that I'd like to address: Paul Warfield, Larry Csonka, Jim Langer, Bob Griese, Larry Little, Coach Don Shula, Dwight Stephenson, Nick Buoniconti, and, of course, Dan Marino. These are the nine Dolphins currently in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and they are the men whose legacy I tried to honor each and every time I put that uniform on. To the great city of Miami and our amazing, passionate Dolphin fans. You guys joined me in a long ride filled with ups and downs, but your support never wavered. I thank you for that. In my opinion, the greatest fans in the NFL, Miami Dolphin fans.”
