Former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue selected for Pro Football Hall of Fame

Tagliabue selected as contributor, will be part of Hall's centennial class

Former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue has been selected for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the league and the Hall announced Wednesday, Jan. 15 on "Good Morning Football."

Tagliabue is one of 15 members of the Hall's centennial class including former coaches Jimmy Johnson and Bill Cowher.

Tagliabue was NFL commissioner from 1989-2006 and played a critical role in helping the Saints return to New Orleans after the team was forced to play its 2005 games in San Antonio and Baton Rouge because of the damage Hurricane Katrina did to New Orleans and the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
