Oilers legend Robert Brazile finds out he's joining the Hall of Fame

Randy Moss put up all the numbers now he waits for the Hall of Fame

The Hall's induction Class of 2018 is an unbelievable collection of talent, including Ray Lewis, Randy Moss and Brian Dawkins, who delivered the last 188 soul-rattling tackles of his brilliant career for the Broncos.

Owens 1,078 career receptions ranks him eighth all-time.

Dawkins is appreciative of this moment because he was a finalist past year and didn't make the class.

"Brian Dawkins has represented this football program, this University, with distinction for over 25 years".

Named to the NFL's All-Decade Team of the 2000s, Urlacher was selected to the Pro Bowl eight times and was first team All-Pro five times.

"Weapon X", as Dawkins was known when he played, is a football operations executive with the Eagles, who meet the Patriots in Super Bowl LII on Sunday.

He played at LSU from 1994-97, earning second-team All-America honors in 1996 and first-team All-America honors in 1997.

Bears superstar linebacker Brian Urlacher was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame Saturday. "Here in Denver, Brian made multiple Pro Bowls as an inspirational leader for our team and was a standout in the community". In addition to his 707 stops and 191 assists, Dawkins had 21 sacks with the Eagles, 34 interceptions - including two for scores - forced 32 fumbles and recovered 16, including one for a score. "His play on game days speaks for itself".

Running back Edgerrin James was also a finalist who didn't get in. An All-NFL player five times, he was chosen to the NFL's 50th Anniversary Team in 1969. He is one of only three players with more than 150 touchdown catches, as his 153 stand behind only Moss (156) and Jerry Rice (197).

He played three seasons for the Cardinals and two of them were in the top-10 seasons for rushing yards in a season in franchise history. If you can call it two seasons.

The linebacker was named a member of the 2018 Pro Football Hall of Fame class Saturday afternoon. Though it wasn't the end of Owen's NFL career, as he would go on to play five more seasons in the league, three in Dallas, one in Buffalo and one incredibly unusual season in Cincinnati, he never quite regained his Philly former and retired without an ever-elusive Super Bowl ring.

And pretty good start to the weekend for the Eagles.
