Former Eagle Terrell Owens earns HOF selection on the third try

Former Eagle Terrell Owens earns HOF selection on the third try

Former Pittsburgh Steelers guard Alan Faneca will have to wait at least one more year to get elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

In 214 games over 14 seasons, Moss was a four-time All-Pro and six-time Pro Bowler who caught 982 passes for 15,292 yards, 156 TDs - trailing only Jerry Rice for the most ever. His misses have been narrow.

With this being Bruce's fourth year of eligibility - his second as a finalist - there's a bit of belief that he could get in.

Owens also spent two seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles (2004-05), helping them reach their previous Super Bowl (in which he played on his broken leg in a losing effort against the New England Patriots) and three with the Dallas Cowboys (2006-08). "But as far as brining up all these other narratives as for why I'm not in the (Hall of Fame) as far as character doesn't add up". "He was always one of those players you couldn't help rooting for, because he worked so hard at the game, obviously cared very deeply about the team's success and was a true professional in every sense of the word". In the span of 24 hours, Dawkins could earn the two most coveted awards in pro football. The histories of the Bucs and Broncos can not be written without mentioning No. 47. Still, the addition of not only being a Hall of Fame player, but a first ballot Hall of Fame NFL player, is a sweet feeling.

The fact that his work in Denver merited selection into the Ring of Fame also shows the sustained excellence of his career.

Or a year ago, for that matter. "If the Hall of Fame is my final stop, I am definitely honored to be part of it". 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. This is an incredibly slippery slope considering how many players elected to the Hall also likely had plenty of character flaws.

By contrast, supporters say it helps the economy, improves global relations, and remains crucial for trade and growth. Negotiators from the United States, Canada and Mexico are making progress on modernizing their trade agreement.

Safety Ed Reed, tight end Tony Gonzalez and cornerback Champ Bailey become newly eligible for enshrinement next year. When Hall of Fame president David Baker knocked on Moss' hotel room door and gave him the news, Moss said he broke down in tears.

Whereas Lewis's election felt inevitable, and Owens's candidacy was the most gawked-at, this class presented a fascinating landscape of players across multiple generations. "That argument really doesn't hold water with me".

Moss and Owens each played for five teams as they often wore out their welcome with their inability to get along with teammates and coaches at times.

Safeties are much more than that, of course.
