It's about time people start remembering the '85 Bears,
ChicagoBears - Covert will be among 10 senior candidates enshrined in Canton as part of a special 20-member centennial class commemorating the NFL's 100th season.
The 10 senior inductees were revealed early Wednesday on "Good Morning Football" on NFL Network. The senior candidates—all of whom last played in the NFL more than 25 years ago—were chosen from among 20 finalists by a special 25-member Blue Ribbon Panel last week at the Hall of Fame.
The sixth overall pick in the 1993 draft out of Pittsburgh played 9 seasons for the Bears at left tackle, including the dominating '85 team.
Covert's induction along with former Bear Ed Sprinkle, who was also recently enshrined, will give the Bears 30 former players in Canton, the most of any team.
