Worth the wait; Steelers' great Shell reveling in Hall nod

PITTSBURGH (AP) Donnie Shell knows what a Hall of Famer looks like.

It helps when you spend your career calling them teammates, as the hard-hitting safety did during 14 seasons dealing out punishment in the Pittsburgh Steelers secondary.

So Shell never panicked as the years passed and the call that he'd been invited to join Joe Greene, Mel Blount and the other members of the Steelers' dynasty of the 1970s already enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame never came. Shell knew one day he'd get fitted for a gold jacket and pose for the bust that will stand alongside the rest of the all-time greats.
