NFL announces 2010s All-Decade Team

The NFL and the Pro Football Hall of Fame have officially announced the roster of the NFL’s 2010s All-Decade Team, naming 52 players and two coaches to the list.

It’s a who’s who of gridiron greats, packed with players whose careers will likely end with the donning of gold jackets at Canton. However, even among these legends, there are those who stand just the smallest bit taller.

Eight of these players – Tom Brady, Aaron Donald, Von Miller, Adrian Peterson, Joe Thomas, Justin Tucker, J.J. Watt and Marshal Yanda – were unanimous selections, named on every single one of the 48 ballots cast by the selection committee.

Let’s look closer at those eight, in alphabetical order; the full roster will be posted at the end of the story.

Longtime Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu leads the way, the only first-time eligible player to make the Hall this year. He’s joined by fellow safety Steve Atwater, wide receiver Isaac Bruce, offensive lineman Steve Hutchinson and running back Edgerrin James. The quintet will join the specially selected 15-man centennial selection group when they are inducted into the Hall in early August.

This weekend, the Pro Football Hall of Fame will enshrine their Class of 2019.

The eight-man class will be made official at the Hall of Fame’s induction ceremony, set to take place in Canton, Ohio on August 3.

For the second year in a row, a trio of first-ballot candidates – Tony Gonzalez, Ed Reed and Champ Bailey – will be inducted into the Hall. That threesome will be joined by Ty Law and Kevin Mawae. In addition, the Hall will be adding defensive back Johnny Robinson from the seniors committee, as well as Broncos owner Pat Bowlen and personnel executive Gil Brandt from the contributors list.

It’s a defense-leaning list, with four defensive backs to go with an offensive lineman and a tight end.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame has released their list of finalists for the Class of 2019.

This list – trimmed from 25 semifinalists – will be subsequently cut to 10 and then to five on Super Bowl weekend. The final five will then be put to a yes/no vote with regards to their potential induction; it takes 80 percent on that final vote to achieve enshrinement.

The list of finalists includes all three ballot newcomers and a number of extremely talented holdovers.

Pro Football Hall of Fame announces 2018 class

The Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio just got a little bigger.

Five players – linebackers Ray Lewis and Brian Urlacher, receivers Randy Moss and Terrell Owens and defensive back Brian Dawkins – were tapped for induction by the modern-era committee. Joining them will be Jerry Kramer and Robert Brazile via the senior committee and personnel executive Bobby Beathard as a contributor.

The list of finalists was trimmed from 15 to 10 and then to five, with those five being subject to a simple yea-or-nay vote – all five ultimately received the thumbs up.

The trio of first-time nominees that made the cut is an impressive bunch.
