CTE fears reverberate for NFL's legends at Pro Football Hall of Fame

06 August 2017

Terrell Davis centered his Pro Football Hall of Fame acceptance speech on the message of setbacks and rising above them as he navigated his journey from Southeast San Diego to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Taylor played with speed and excellent instincts, and he recorded 139.5 sacks during his career.

Andersen is the NFL's all-leading scorer. Former Miami Dolphins coach Jimmy Johnson will be Taylor's presenter.

Davis' election was delayed by questions about such a short career: Davis played seven National Football League seasons, the last two wrecked by injuries. He was a 5 time Pro Bowler, named an All-Pro six times and was the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 1984. Easley's high school coach Tommy Rhodes be his presenter. Kenny Easley entered as a senior nominee and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones made it as a contributor. In the 1998 playoffs, he rushed for a franchise postseason-record 199 yards against the Dolphins, then for 167 yards against the Jets, and 102 yards in the 1999 Super Bowl victory over the Falcons. "At the same time, you inspired me, I hope I inspired you with the passion I played with", he said.

The challenge of dealing with pressure when competing at home isn't new, even if he has lived away from London for many years now. And, you will agree, that will have taken some doing. "It's harder to be able to get back into your routine".

While Warner pledges vigilance in monitoring his sons, he realizes that in dealing with head injuries during his career he also received that same attention from someone - his wife, Brenda, also his Hall of Fame presenter.

Morten Anderson was a fourth round pick of the New Orleans Saints back in 1982.

This year's class includes six notable players and an owner who has been making waves in the league for almost three decades. Both men had peaks worth remembering - Davis's 2,000-yard rushing season and Tomlinson's 31 combined rushing and receiving touchdowns - but even their peaks are remembered completely differently. Although Andersen is the NFL's scoring leader and kicked for 25 seasons, it took him eight years of eligibility before getting in.

Terrell Davis said he wasn't going to cry.

Davis had one of the most spectacular short careers in National Football League history, but his seven seasons were brilliant enough.

NFL.com first reported the Hall's desire to bid on the event and multiple sources have confirmed to 92.3 The Fan that the Browns are "very involved" in the process along with the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission. During his seven-year career, Davis ran for 7,607 and 60 rushing touchdowns with another five receiving scores. Tomlinson's former teammate Lorenzo Neal will present Tomlinson. He was released by the Packers the same year.
