Former members of both the Kansas City Chiefs and St. Louis Rams organizations Trent Green and Dick Vermeil were inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame on Tuesday, according to a report on the team's website.

Green played quarterback for the Rams from 1999-2000 before joining the Chiefs from 2001-06. After a season with the Miami Dolphins, Green played his last season in the NFL in 2008 with St. Louis. In 2003, Green notched his most memorable season as he lead the Chiefs to a 13-3 regular season record and AFC West division title, throwing for 4,039 yards and 24 touchdowns.

Dick Vermeil served as head coach in St. Louis from 1997-99, leading the Rams to the franchise's first championship in defeating the Tennessee Titans in Super Bowl Super Bowl XXXIV. After a brief retirement, Vermeil returned to the sidelines in Kansas City, coaching the Chiefs from 2001-05.

"It's a great honor to go in with Coach Vermeil, who goes in as a legend of Missouri sports," Green said in his induction speech.
