Bill Belichick, Robert Kraft attend Hall of Fame ceremony for Randy Moss

Bill Belichick, Robert Kraft attend Hall of Fame ceremony for Randy Moss

The Class of 2018 was inducted during the Enshrinement Ceremony at the Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton. Randy Moss was both, making him the most unsafe pass catcher in the game, and now a Pro Football Hall of Famer.

One of those Hall of Fame brothers, Terrell Owens, declined to attend.

Eagles safety Brian Dawkins perhaps drew the largest following in the crowd - based on the eye test of seeing green No. 20 jerseys - but Bears fans made their presence felt.

The down-to-earth guy in the gold jacket held it together during the rest of a heartfelt address devoted to thanking Urlacher's family and former teammates and coaches, perhaps the finest 19 minutes Chicago has seen from Urlacher on the occasion he became a football immortal. He said his mother lifted his spirits when he was bypassed by the Hall of Fame twice.

"I came back, and boy did I come back", Lewis said.

"When I put this jacket on, Jacksonville became another Hall of Famer".

Owens said he'd like to start a conversation for change with the Hall of Fame voting process.

One group he didn't thank, though, was the Hall of Fame selection committee that snubbed him twice before inducting him in his third-year of eligibility.

"I have grown leaps and bounds because of the things I went through". "Whether it's three years or 45 years, you should get what you've rightfully earned". It is not always a popular stance to go against the grain. I knew I wanted to be a part of something.

Bolton said Thursday that Trump is "leading unprecedented action to punish Russia " for its efforts to disrupt American elections. President Donald Trump was strongly criticised last month for not condemning alleged Russian actions, while he was in Helsinki.

"I never had a chance to say goodbye", Urlacher said.

On Saturday, the former Minnesota receiver will be enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Lewis was joined by Randy Moss, Brian Dawkins, Brian Urlacher, Jerry Kramer, Robert Brazile and Bobby Beathard as inductees at the hall ceremony.

Dawkins' speech bordered on dark in several spots as he was very open about his battles with depression, but he brought it home with grace in professing his confidence in a brighter tomorrow. "We are eight of 318 of the greatest players to ever play the game, and that's truly unbelievable". "But we made it work".

Dawkins played 16 seasons - 13 in Philadelphia, then three more in Denver - and was a five-time All Pro.

The six-time Pro Bowler compiled 15,934 receiving yards and 153 receiving touchdowns on 1,078 career receptions.

Brazile, who retired in 1984, was a member of the NFL's 1970s All-Decade team. He portrayed himself as misunderstood.

"I love you too", Owens said before pausing, according to Sports Illustrated's Greg Bishop.
