Brian Dawkins inducted into NFL Hall of Fame — Twitter reacts

Lakers News: Terrell Owens Thanks Kobe Bryant In 2018 Pro Football Hall Of Fame Speech For Setting Gold Standard Terrell Owens slams sportswriters during HOF acceptance speech

Moss went for over 1,000 yards in his first season with the Raiders, making it to the 1,000 mark on the final day of the season. Its core values aren't just football values.

Ray Lewis joined Brian Dawkins, Randy Moss, Terrell Owens, Brian Urlacher, Jerry Kramer, Bobby Beathard, and Robert Brazile as the 2018 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductees.

Owens acknowledged his fellow members of the 2018 Hall of Fame class, who were inducted in Canton on Saturday. "Please know that you all are in my heart".

Owens told the media after his speech that, at first, the Hall of Fame wasn't going to give him his gold jacket ahead of time unless he was there.

Brazile was also a veterans committee nominee after 29 years of eligibility. He recapped his career by thanking all the people who helped make it possible.

The Cowboys celebrate every Hall of Famer they have ever had.

"Before Lawrence Taylor, he was Lawrence Taylor". Maybe that was true.

At the first mention of his late mother, Lavoyda, Brian Urlacher interrupted his Hall of Fame induction speech and thwarted the emotion threatening to overwhelm him like he once stopped so many fullbacks.

Urlacher starred at Lovington High School and the University of New Mexico before embarking on a 13-year National Football League career with the Chicago Bears.

"Troy's been a big brother to me since I got to Philadelphia", Dawkins said recently.

Maybe nothing sums up Owen's career better than his impromptu reaction to a fan who yelled out "I love you" during his Hall of Fame acceptance speech on Saturday, via ESPN.

"Football has provided me with virtually everything I have in life". "For all my teammates that I just talked about ... man, stand up". "Not yet ... uh, uh".

Urlacher added he loved "everything about football".

Each focused as much on their faith as they did on their careers and the impact their faith had in bringing them to this moment.

He also echoed a theme he addressed several times during the week. He called Olin Kreutz "the toughest person I've ever met".

"Because I did not get here by myself", he emphasized. That's not my nature. "I was not always 'the dude.' It was never me. We are eight of 318 of the greatest players to ever play the game, and that's truly fantastic". The greatest is tough to single out, but no pass catcher was more impossible to guard man-to-man.

The words were even harder to spit out when Urlacher turned attention toward his immediate family in Arizona: wife Jennipher and children Pamela, Riley and Kennedy.

Moss received his gold jacket Friday night in OH, at the Canton Civic Center.

Lewis was saved for last, we assume, because everyone knew he would preach well beyond his "requested time limit", and of course he obliged.

Moss rubbed the face and top of his bust, then delivered a sermon worthy of any church or synagogue.
