Known for his hair and also his hard hits, Troy Polamalu leads the latest inductees into the NFL Hall of Fame.

Edgerrin James, Steve Atwater, Isaac Bruce and Steve Hutchinson were also inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame on Saturday.

Pittsburgh Steelers safety Polamalu played from 2003 to 2014 and was selected in his first year of eligibility.

Polamalu won two Super Bowls, went to eight Pro Bowls and was a four-time All-Pro.

He said he went six or seven years without cutting his hair.

Polamalu enters at the same time as former Steelers coach Bill Cowher and defensive back Donnie Shell, who were previously selected as part of the NFL’s centennial class in celebration of the league’s 100th year.
