"It's a humbling experience for me," said Aikman. "When I look at all the people who have made this organization what it is, it's such an honor to think that my name will be up there in the Ring of Honor and will allow players and fans to reflect back on some of the accomplishments that we had in our run. It was a special time for us, and being inducted will certainly be a special moment for all of us."
