Statement from Lions owner and chairman Martha Firestone Ford

"We would like to congratulate the entire Karras family on the selection of Alex into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

"While we were thrilled to induct Alex into our most recent Pride of the Lions Class in 2018, today's announcement solidifies his place as not only one of the all-time great Lions players, but also one of the best to ever play in the NFL.

"We also would like to congratulate all of Alex's fellow Centennial Slate Hall of Fame inductees."
