Eagles legend Brian Dawkins is now a Hall of Famer

See how Ray Lewis Randy Moss Brian Urlacher reacted to making the Hall of Fame

In regards to the Pro Football Hall of Fame alone, there is a conundrum of if a player must have elite statistics, elite results (i.e. winning championships), or a combination of the two. Only a small handful have earned induction into the collection of distinguished players for multiple teams - whether it goes by "Ring of Fame", as it does in Denver, or "Ring of Honor", as teams such as the Buccaneers use.

Let's start with Reed.

A nine-time Pro Bowler and four-time Hall of Fame finalist, Lynch was a key piece of the Bucs' defense in 2002 that carried them to a Super Bowl XXXVII victory.

Owens was expected to be a shoo-in to make it in in 2017, but he was left out for a second straight year.

"That pissed me off, and the next year what happened?"


Also, he basically has the Bill Belichick stamp of approval. He helped shape the way the ILB position was played, and helped lead the way to some incredible Bears defensive units. T.O. spent 15 years in the NFL.

After starting his career with the Redskins (1999-2003), Bailey peaked with the Broncos in 2006 when he led the National Football League with 10 interceptions.

A fourth Jackson State Tiger has received the highest honor in the sport.

After playing college football at UT-Chattanooga, the 49ers selected Owens in the 1996 NFL Draft. The New York media will probably not handle any delay to Eli's enshrinement with patience, either, so expect this to be a fun one. While he never did win the big game in his career, he will be remembered for what he did on the field for so many years. When a John Lynch discussion begins, before anyone gets around to the excellent numbers (such as 1,054 tackles and 26 interceptions) and overwhelming list of accolades (such as nine Pro Bowl selections), it is his hitting that comes first. The other thing about Gonzalez is that he nearly seemed to get better as he got older. Although he only spent one season in Buffalo, Owens quickly became a fan favorite after surprising nearly everyone and signing with the Bills after the 2008 season. During his 16-year career, Fletcher was a model of durability. However history remembers Urlacher, Canton is a long way from Platteville, Wis., and the welcome-to-the-NFL moment during his first training camp.

To get in the Hall of Fame next year, all five of those guys are going to have to compete with any finalist who didn't get inducted in 2018.
