Third Time Isn't The Charm For Edgerrin James, Hall Of Fame

The Pro Football Hall of Fame has eight new members. He is sixth all time in receiving yards with 15,127 and eighth in receiving touchdowns with 111.

Reed led the National Football League in interceptions three times and had 64 career interceptions, while playing 11 of his 12 National Football League seasons with the Baltimore Ravens from 2002-12. The team still needs an assistant defensive backs coach.

In addition to Reed and Gonzalez, cornerbacks Champ Bailey and Ty Law made the class as well as offensive lineman Kevin Mawae.

Robinson was an iconic safety in a 12-year career, 10 in Kansas City, where he earned a spot on the AFL's All-Time Team. He had about 20 minutes to state his case, to plead with the other members to finally elect Pat Bowlen into the Hall.

Bailey, Gonzalez and Reed were all nominated for the 2019 class within their first year of eligibility. Denver has won three Super Bowls under his leadership.

It would appear Boselli is caught in a numbers game where players who have been dominant in their careers are being inducted on the first try. "How great would that be?" I always tell people I became a man, obviously, on the field but off the field as well out in Kansas City.

The sound clip, which was tweeted out by Klein, caused a social media uproar with numerous Kansas City fans showing their disdain. Reed, selected to nine Pro Bowls, was named the NFL's 2004 defensive player of the year. "He was the most prolific tight end in National Football League history and certainly one of the best to ever wear a Chiefs uniform". He played 16 seasons and 241 games and made the NFL's All Decade Team for the 2000s. Considered a pioneer of many scouting techniques, Brandt drafted future Hall of Famers Roger Staubach, Randy White and Tony Dorsett. After making the switch from flanker to safety in his third season, Robinson recorded 57 career interceptions, was selected to seven Pro Bowls and named All-Pro six times. "It's been a great ride". During his eight seasons with the New York Jets, he helped lead the Gang Green to the playoffs four times.

"You know what - Falcons, honestly, they made my career to come here".

Gonzalez was traded to Atlanta before the 2009 season and played five seasons there. He totaled 57 interceptions in 12 seasons with the franchise. That included the 1998 Super Bowl, when the owner famously shouted "This one's for John" - a tribute to John Elway winning his first title. Unfortunately, because he is battling Alzheimer's disease, Mr. Bowlen did not attend the NFL Honors show last weekend.
