Former Rams quarterback Kurt Warner has been voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

With Warner’s selection for the Aug, 5 ceremony in Canton, Ohio, the Rams have 30 Hall of Famers.

Warner, a three-time finalist, was first eligible for enshrinement in 2015. His resume includes two NFL most valuable player awards, four Pro Bowls, two first-team all-Pro selections and a Super Bowl MVP trophy, which he earned after throwing for a Super Bowl record 414 yards in the Rams’ win over Tennessee.

After three Super Bowl starts (XXXIV, XLIII, XXXVI), he owns the top three Super Bowl passing-yard performances and ranks second in career Super Bowl passing yards.

Warner is one of just three quarterbacks in NFL history to start a Super Bowl for two different teams, joining Craig Morton and Peyton Manning.

During the 1999 season, Warner threw 41 touchdown passes, the most in franchise history. Two seasons later, he threw 36 touchdowns – the second-highest output by a Ram.

The franchise finished in the top five in passing offense in five consecutive seasons with Warner as the starting quarterback (1999-2003). Under his watch, the Rams also led the NFL in yards per game, passing yards per game and points per game for three straight seasons (1999-2001).

From 1999-2009, his time as a starter, he ranks fifth in passing touchdowns, fourth in passing yards and second in completion percentage.
