A former San Francisco 49ers offensive lineman and a former Oakland Raiders defensive tackle were elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame Saturday.

Larry Allen, who played 14 seasons with the 49ers and Dallas Cowboys, was a member of the National Football League's All-Decade Team in both the 1990s and 2000s.

He also was an All-Pro seven times, according to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Warren Sapp, in his 13-year NFL career with the Raiders and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, amassed 96.5 sacks and was named an All-Pro four times, and made the Pro Bowl seven times, the Hall of Fame said. Sapp, like Allen, was a member of the NFL's All-Decade Team in the 1990s and 2000s.

Allen and Sapp will be joined by five other football greats, including Cris Carter, Curley Culp, Jonathan Ogden, Bill Parcells and Dave Robinson, in the 2013 Hall of Fame class.

All the inductees will be enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, on Aug. 3.
