Speaking of the Redskins, they have 12 players up for the Hall of Fame including two of their own first-ballot candidates in RB Clinton Portis and LS Ethan Albright. The two, along with their fellow teammates OT Jon Jansen, OT Chris Samuels and CB Shawn Springs, are hoping this will be the year they get inducted.
Although most of the noise has been about those hoping to become first ballot Hall of Famers, many players have been waiting their turn. Players range from offensive headliners like QB Kurt Warner, WR Marvin Harrison and OT Orlando Pace to defensive stars like DB’s Troy Vincent and John Lynch.
Last but not least, game-changing coaches are hoping to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2016. Whether it Don Coryell’s innovative ‘Air Coryell’ offense or Tony Dungy being the first African American Head Coach to win a Super Bowl, the nominated coaches have earned their stripes.
