One of the larger-than-life characters on the Bears' Super Bowl XX-winning defense. "Danimal" made it to the Hall of Fame in 2002 after starring at defensive end for the Bears for the entirety of his career from 1979-90. Despite battling serious knee injuries, Hampton made it to four Pro Bowls and was a first-team All-Pro once.
