New York Jets Legend Joe Klecko to Join the NFL Hall of Fame

Joe Klecko was selected as one of three senior candidates in August after failing to get voted in by the regular selection committee for years. Klecko, 69, played 11 seasons for the Jets and was a Pro Bowler at three different positions — defensive end, tackle, and nose tackle.

Klecko was a two-time All-Pro selection and he led the NFL with 20.5 sacks in 1981, before the stat was recognized by the NFL. Klecko was a member of the famed “Sack Exchange” defensive line.
