The Jacksonville Jaguars are going to induct retired quarterback Mark Brunell into the Pride of the Jaguars, the franchise's hall of fame.

Team president Mark Lamping made the announcement Tuesday, saying Brunell will be honored at halftime of Jacksonville's Dec. 15 game against Buffalo.

Brunell will become the fifth member of the Pride, joining offensive tackle Tony Boselli (2006), former team owners Wayne and Delores Weaver (2011) and running back Fred Taylor (2012).

Brunell spent nine years with the Jaguars (1995-2003), leading the team to four playoff berths and two AFC championship games.

He says, ''The passing records, they get broken eventually. The other individual awards, Pro Bowls and those things, big games sometimes get forgotten. But the opportunity to be on the Pride, that goes on, that lives on.''
