Photo: C.J. Mosley Pays Tribute To Fellow Alabama Linebacker Great Derrick Thomas At Hall Of Fame

New Baltimore Raven linebacker C.J. Mosley would do well to follow in the footsteps of fellow Alabama linebacker legend and Kansas City Chief great Derrick Thomas. Thomas. a nine-time Pro Bowler, was inducted to the NFL Hall of Fame in 2009, nine years after his tragic passing following a car accident. He still holds the NFL record for sacks in a game, with seven, and got to the quarterback 126.5 times in 11 seasons.

Mosley appears to be in Canton, Ohio at the NFL Hall of Fame today, and he paid his respects to Thomas at his bust, and shared it on social media.

Along with filling the role of Alabama linebacker great in the NFL, Mosley is also the heir apparent to the inside linebacker spot in Baltimore left vacant a few years ago by future Hall of Famer Ray Lewis.
