Best Answer

Warren Moon


Warren Moon, one of only two people to be inducted into both the Canadian Football Hall of Fame and the Pro Football Hall of Fame (Bud Grant is the other) was a rookie with the Edmonton Eskimos in 1978.

In 1964, however, Tom Casey became the first black player inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame.
