Former Colts stars Saturday, James nominated for Pro Football Hall of Fame

He was an all-decade lineman for the 2000s, as selected by the Hall, and along with Randy Moss, Ray Lewis and Brian Urlacher, headlines this year's new nominees. Talley, Hull, and Brown also have strong arguments as to why they should be in the Hall of Fame. This Smith has been out of the National Football League since 2012, with career totals of 2,641 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns. He started all 16 games in ten of his seasons with Indianapolis. McNair is one of five quarterbacks who will be considered this time. Both Thomas and Webb will have to survive a lengthy selection process. There are 21 offensive linemen on the ballot this year.

Driver, the franchise's all-time leading receiver with 10,137 yards, is one of 11 first-time nominees.

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. The Baltimore Ravens initially signed him as a free agent that April, but waived him less than two months later. Former Washington Redskins general manager Bobby Beathard is the contributor nominee. He was the team's starting center by 2000, and the rest, as they say, is history.

He made the Pro Bowl and was named a first-team All-Pro during his first season for his return prowess, scoring two kick return touchdowns and taking one punt to the house. He was also the starting center on the Colts' championship team in Super Bowl XLI. That was Holmgren's final season in Green Bay.

A five-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro, Bennett would go to win two AFC Defensive Player of the Year awards and played in five Super Bowls. The move was a mere formality; Urlacher is one of 108 men and 11 first-year candidates listed for this upcoming year's class, which will be whittled to 25 semifinalists in November and 15 finalist in January.

Getafe 1 Barcelona 2
Getafe hero Shibasaki had to leave the match with an injury of his own early in the second half, shortly before Sergi Roberto tested Guaita.

No, the Steve Smith listed among this year's nominees is the former New York Giants receiver who, despite winning Super Bowl XLII and earning a Pro Bowl nod in 2009, is far from Hall of Fame pedigree.

Jerry Kramer (G, 1958-68) has already been nominated as a finalist from the Senior Committee.

The Selection Committee will meet on Saturday, Feb. 3, 2018 in Minneapolis, Minn.to elect the Class of 2018. The class - between four and eight members - will then be announced at the NFL Honors event that evening. Induction will held next August in Canton, Ohio.

Although apparently, not that Steve Smith.
