Terrell Owens and Randy Moss, who took turns as Bay Area lightning rods, are going into the Pro Football Hall of Fame together as two of the NFL's most productive and controversial wide receivers ever.
But the biggest stars of the class are the two linebackers that made it on their first tries, and the pair of lightning-rod receiver who sometimes caused as many problems for their own teams as for the opposition. And as it turned out, we won a lot of games. He also spent time with the Kansas City Chiefs, Atlanta Falcons, Miami Dolphins and San Diego Chargers.
Lewis spent his entire 17-year career with the Baltimore Ravens. Law, however, did not make the cut. Beathard was responsible for drafting Hall of Famers Junior Seau, Art Monk, Russ Grimm and Darrell Green. The former Leesville High School standout was an eight-time Pro Bowler and eight-time All-Pro.
The Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year went to Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, who raised more than $37 million for people affected by Hurricane Harvey. During a 10-year career, Brazile never missed a game and retired with 13 interceptions and 11 sacks over his final three seasons, when sacks became an official stat in 1982. He picked off Peyton Manning three times in an AFC Championship win over the Colts in the 2003 season. Brazile reached five Pro Bowls as a linebacker for the Houston Oilers from 1975-84. I guess your overall final accomplishment for playing in the National Football League is the gold jacket.
It shouldn't take this long to get a player like Owens into the Hall, but at least he's there now. Urlacher was the 2000 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year and the 2005 NFL Defensive Player of the Year. Member of the NFL's all-decade team for the 2000s.
Equally comfortable playing against the run as he was against the pass, Dawkins finished his career in Philly having recorded an incredible 34 interceptions, 32 fumbles, 21 sacks and 707 tackles in 183 in an Eagles uniform, and always played the game the right way. Dawkins would go on to make the Pro Bowl nine times and be named to the All-Pro team four different times. Folks mad that safety John Lynch, offensive tackle Tony Boselli or guard Alan Faneca will be forced to wait another year. Set NFL record with 23 touchdown receptions in his first season with Patriots, 2007 ...
The former National Football League wide receiver was in Minneapolis this week, but left before Saturday's announcement because he had committed to play in a basketball game in Los Angeles.
However, he's now contending with a strong group of first-year eligible players. He was named a second-team All-American by the Associated Press and The Sporting News after his senior year.
At the time of his retirement, Bruce ranked second all-time with 15,208 yards receiving, only trailing Jerry Rice.
During his time with the Philadelphia Eagles, he was especially volatile.
