Tim Brown is shockingly in his fifth year of eligibility. Brown played in the NFL for 17 seasons after being selected in the first round by the Raiders in 1988 and played all but one season for the Raiders. He holds the Raiders franchise records for receptions, receiving yards, and punt return yards. He is currently fifth all-time on the NFL receptions list with 1,094. He totaled 100 receiving touchdowns which is tied for seventh all-time and 14, 934 receiving yards which is sixth all-time. He led the NFL with 104 receptions in 1997. He was a nine time Pro Bowl selection also earning All-Pro honors twice as both a returner and receiver. It is crazy that a player that is in the top seven of every meaningful receiving category is not yet in the Hall of Fame.
Ray Guy is looking to become the first punter ever inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He is in his 23rd year of eligibility. Guy is widely regarded as the greatest punter of all-time with seven Pro Bowl selections and being named to six All-Pro teams. He was the first punter ever to be selected in the first round of an NFL Draft in 1973. Guy was a member of all three Raiders' Super Bowl victories and had a stretch of 619 punts without one being blocked.
The rest of the Pro Football Hall of Fame finalist include defensive end Michael Strahan, wide receiver Marvin Harrison, linebacker Derrick Brooks, head coach Tony Dungy, linebackers Charles Haley and Kevin Greene as well as running back Jerome Bettis, tackle Walter Jones, wide receiver Andre Reed, cornerback Aeneas Williams, safety John Lynch, guard Will Shields, kicker Mort Anderson, and 49ers owner Edward DeBartolo Jr.
