O'Neal newest member of Chargers Hall of Fame

SAN DIEGO (AP) Leslie O'Neal, who is tied for 10th on the NFL's all-time sacks list with Lawrence Taylor, is the newest member of the San Diego Chargers Hall of Fame.

O'Neal will be inducted on Oct. 19 at halftime of the Chargers' game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

A two-time All-American at Oklahoma State, O'Neal was drafted eighth overall in 1986 and went on to become the NFL's Defensive Rookie Player of the Year after amassing 12.5 sacks, including a team-record five in a game against the Dallas Cowboys.

He collected 105.5 sacks in 10 seasons in San Diego. The six-time Pro Bowler had accumulated 132.5 sacks by the time he retired in 1999 after also playing two seasons each with the St. Louis Rams and the Chiefs.
