The 2017 Pro Football Hall of Fame Inductees
The inductees to the Pro Football Hall of Fame are chosen by a 46-person committee, made up primarily of members of the media. Every franchise in the league selects one person, usually a beat writer for a major newspaper in the city, to the Selection Committee. There are also 13 at-large seats on the committee and one spot for a representative from the Pro Football Writers Association. Non-players can be elected to the hall at any time, but a player or coach must have been retired for at least five years to be eligible.
The players chosen for induction in 2017 include:
- Morten Andersen-K: Andersen came into the National Football League in 1982 and retired a quarter of a century later having set the career record for most points scored. He played 13 years for the New Orleans Saints, then finished out his career with stints with the Atlanta Falcons, Kansas City Chiefs and Minnesota Vikings. He was the first kicker to convert three field goals of more than 50 yards in the same game and he scored more than 100 points in a season 14 times during his career.
- Terrell Davis-RB: Davis made a big impact during a relatively short career, starting with the Denver Broncos in 1995. He ran for more than 1,000 yards for each of his first four years in the league and surpassed the 2,000 yard mark in 1998, when he also led the league in touchdowns and took his team to a second straight Super Bowl victory. He had an NFL record seven straight 100 yard games in playoffs, during which he scored 8 touchdowns.
- Kenny Easley-S: Drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in 1981, Easley was named AFC Defensive Rookie of the Year that fall. Known as “the Enforcer,” Easy earned the title of NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 1984, when he logged 10 interceptions and two touchdowns. In just seven years, he compiled 32 interceptions and was first-team All-Pro four times.
- Jason Taylor-DE: With 139.5 total career sacks, Taylor ranks sixth all time in quarterback takedowns. Drafted in 1997 by the Miami Dolphins, he became a starter as a rookie and logged five sacks, even though he missed three games with a broken arm. In 15 years in the league, he went to the Pro Bowl six times and also had 10 or more sacks in a season six times, including 18.5 in 2006, when he earned the title of NFL Defensive Player of the Year.
- LaDainian Tomlinson-RB: After a stellar college career, where he became only the second player to amass 2,000 yards in a season and 5,000 in a career, Tomlinson joined the San Diego Chargers in 2001, the first of 11 seasons in the NFL. A five-time Pro Bowler, LD ran for 13,684 yards in career (5th on the all time list) and 145 touchdowns, second in the annals of NFL history. He was the league’s MVP in 2006, when he set career highs for rushing (1,815 yards) and touchdowns (28).
- Kurt Warner-QB: Warner played Arena Football and in Europe before finally making it to the NFL in 1998. The following year, injuries moved him up to the top of the depth chart for the St. Louis Rams, where he exploded on the scene, passing for 4,353 years and 41 TDs, earning the league’s MVP award and leading his team to the Super Bowl, where his 414 yard passing effort gave the Rams the victory. He took the Rams back to the Super Bowl two years later and won another MVP, then moved on the Arizona Cardinals, where he made yet another trip to the Super Bowl
- Jerry Jones-Owner: Jones took over a beleaguered and once-proud franchise in 1989 and almost immediately restored it to its former glory. In his first seven years as owner, the Dallas Cowboys won three Super Bowls, six division titles and four conference championships.
