Indianapolis Colts legend and Pro Football Hall of Fame Centennial Class of 2020 member, Edgerrin James, has selected Colts’ owner Jim Irsay to present him for enshrinement in August.

“Jim Irsay’s my man,” James told media members last week in a Zoom call hosted by the Pro Football Hall of Fame. “He’s always taken good care of me. Irsay has always been, like, super cool from Day 1. Even though I went to Arizona (as a free agent), the relationship remained the same. He’s an important person to myself and the relationship that we’ve built over the years. I have so much respect for Mr. Irsay and the organization, I thought it would only be right.”

James was previously inducted into the Colts’ Ring of Honor in 2012 and is currently the franchise leader in the major rushing categories, including career rushing yards (9,226), career rushing touchdowns (64), rushing yards per game average (96.1), most rushing yards in a single season (1,709) and most seasons with 1,000 rushing yards (5).

James will be enshrined into the Hall of Fame the same weekend as his former Colts teammate, Peyton Manning, who was elected as a member of the Class of 2021. The enshrinement of the Centennial Class of 2020 will be held Aug. 7 at Tom Benson Hall of Fame in Stadium in Canton. The Class of 2021 will be enshrined Aug. 8.
