Hall of Fame list sets up selection Saturday scrimmage

The Other Steve Smith Could Be Most Underqualified Pro Football HOF Nominee Ever

The Pro Football Hall of Fame released a list of candidates for potential selection in 2018, and three of the 80 Greatest Redskins are among them including Joe Jacoby.

Cornelius Bennett, linebacker, Buffalo Bills 1987-1995, Atlanta Falcons 1996-1998, Indianapolis Colts 1999-2000: Bennett entered the National Football League as the second selection of the 1996 draft. He would return to start all 16 games the following season. The 32-year-old retired in 2012 (meaning he's now eligible) after short stints in Philadelphia and St. Louis after racking up 2,641 yards and 12 touchdowns over five National Football League seasons. After leaving Miami after the 2000 season, Webb played his final two seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals (2001-2002).

Today, the Pro Football Hall of Fame selection committee nominated him as one of 11 first-year eligible players for the HOF Class of 2018! The semifinalists will be reduced to 15 finalists in early January. He started 188 of 197 games in Indy, was named to six Pro Bowls and was part of the Super Bowl XLI championship squad.

Urlacher was a four-time All-Pro who helped the Bears win four division titles and reach the Super Bowl in 2006.

Defensive backs: CB Eric Allen, S Steve Atwater, CB/S Ronde Barber, S LeRoy Butler, S Brian Dawkins, S Rodney Harrison, CB Ty Law, CB Albert Lewis, S John Lynch, S Dennis Smith, CB Everson Walls, S Darren Woodson. Former Washington Redskins general manager Bobby Beathard is the contributor nominee.

Donaldson also had successful stops in Seattle (1993 and 1994) and Dallas (1995 and 1996) after his days in Indianapolis were over, earning Pro Bowl selections with the Cowboys both seasons.

Players and coaches who predate the 25-year window are considered by the Senior Selection Committee, which has named Brazile and former Green Bay Packers guard Jerry Kramer as its finalists for the Class of 2018.

Randy Moss, Terrell Owens and Isaac Bruce are some of the stud wide receivers that were nominated for the Hall of Fame this year. The Class of 2018 will be determined February 3 in Minneapolis, the day before Super Bowl LII.

Of the 11 players ahead of James on the rushing charts, 10 have bronze busts in Canton, Ohio. There is no set number for any class of enshrinees, though between four and eight new members will be selected.
