Dent gives Gilliam credit for developing the football and life skills that made receiving the game's greatest honor possible.

The induction ceremony will be held Aug. 6 at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. The Bears are scheduled to play the St. Louis Rams in the Hall of Fame game the following day, which may be cancelled if the lockout doesn't end soon.
