Edgerrin James A Hall Of Fame Finalist For Third Time

  • Champ Bailey, Ed Reed, Tony Gonzalez among finalists for Pro Football HOF

Although previously eligible, Flores - who coached two Oakland Raiders teams to Super Bowl titles - and longtime defensive lineman Seymour are finalists for the first time.

University of Miami greats Ed Reed and Edgerrin James, and former Dillard High standout Isaac Bruce, however, were among the finalists for professional football's highest individual honor.

The Hall of Fame's Board of Selectors will meet on February 2 in Atlanta, the day before Super Bowl LIII, to narrow the list to a maximum of five players. Inductions are August 3 in Canton, Ohio. He was an eight-time Pro Bowl selection and was named an All-Pro three times.




Former Cowboys executive Gil Brandt and Broncos owner Pat Bowlen previously were chosen as 2019 finalists as contributors, and former Kansas City Chiefs player Johnny Robinson is a finalist as a senior candidate. He was taken in the first round of the 1999 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins. Like Bailey, Seymour was also a member of the NFL's All-Decade team in the 2000's. His 15,610 total yards from scrimmage ranks 11th all-time among running backs, and is more than Hall of Fame backs Eric Dickerson, Jerome Bettis and Jim Brown. He holds the career receptions record for tight ends with 1,325, second only overall to Jerry Rice, and gained more than 15,127 yards while scoring 111 touchdowns.

Easley, Jones, Largent, and Kennedy each spent their entire National Football League playing careers with the Seahawks, but Hutchinson joined the Minnesota Vikings after his fifth season with Seattle, going on to earn three more All-Pro selections and four more Pro Bowl honors.

Ravens' former safety Ed Reed has made that list. Over his career, Reed had 64 interceptions for 1,590 return yards and seven touchdowns. But he was not among five defensive backs who were named finalists on Thursday, 3 of them safeties.
