Krause shows off bike at Hall of Fame


Class of 1998 inductee Paul Krause is really great at collecting things. During his 16-season career with the Washington Redskins and Minnesota Vikings, he accumulated 81 interceptions to retire as the NFL’s all-time leading interceptor. That mark has not been seriously challenged in the three decades since Krause passed fellow Hall of Famer Emlen Tunnell’s total of 79 picks.

For the past couple of years, Krause has turned his attention to collecting the signatures of 130 members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame on his custom made motorcycle. Krause, who is in town to play in the Hall’s annual Golf Classic on Tuesday, delivered the bike to the museum this morning. The motorcycle will be on exhibit at the Hall of Fame for the next several weeks. 

Krause shows off his "Interceptor" custom-built motorcycle on Monday.  The NFL's all-time leading interceptor took time to view the jersey he wore when he set the record.  The jersey is on display in the Hall's Pro Football Today Gallery.
