Butler visits Canton

Class of 2012 enshrinee Jack Butler visited the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Friday. The former Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback, who was joined by his son and daughter, was in Canton to prepare for his upcoming enshrinement on Aug. 4.

Butler, the NFL’s second-all-time leading interceptor at the time of his retirement, was elected to the Hall of Fame on the day before Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis along with Dermontti Dawson, Chris Doleman, Cortez Kennedy, Curtis Martin, and Willie Roaf.

Aside from meeting with Hall of Fame staff, he took time to tour the museum with President/Executive Director Steve Perry. He also met with media and received a behind-the-scenes look at the Hall of Fame’s archives.

Tickets and a variety of fan packages for the 2012 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement are on sale now.
