The 'other' Steve Smith nominated for Pro Football Hall of Fame

The 'other' Steve Smith nominated for Pro Football Hall of Fame

Cornelius Bennett, linebacker, Buffalo Bills 1987-1995, Atlanta Falcons 1996-1998, Indianapolis Colts 1999-2000: Bennett entered the National Football League as the second selection of the 1996 draft. He started all 16 games in ten of his seasons with Indianapolis.

Vanden Bosch played three seasons for the Lions (2010-12) and spent time with the Arizona Cardinals and Tennessee Titans in his 11-year career. By years, he's eligible, having been retired for at least five seasons, but his 2,641 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns say otherwise.

Urlacher is one of 108 modern-era players and coaches to be selected as a nominee. Another Vigor alumnus, former Houston Oilers linebacker Robert Brazile, is one of the two players nominated for the Class of 2018 by the Senior Selection Committee.

The list of modern-era nominees for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2018 was released on Tuesday and there was one player on there that turned heads.

Although, according to the Pro Football Hall of Fame rules, nominations can be made by anyone of "any qualified person who has been connected with pro football in any capacity simply by writing to the Pro Football Hall of Fame".

The list of nominees will be reduced to 25 semifinalists in November, then to 15 finalists in January. McNair is one of five quarterbacks who will be considered this time.

At the suggestion of former college roommate Nate Hobgood-Chittick, then-Colts general manager Bill Polian chose to give Saturday a tryout the following year.

Smith retired from the National Football League just last year, so many fans were surprised to find out that the 38-year-old's name already came up in the list of nominees for the Hall of Fame class of 2018. Both Thomas and Webb will have to survive a lengthy selection process.

Butler also played in two Super Bowls in 1996 and 1997, and was a member of the Super Bowl-winning team in 1996. Therefore, any individual who last played or coached in 2012 are eligible for the first time in 2018).

Almost every other wide receiver nominee-there were 12 besides Smith-surpassed those marks in a two-year stretch over their careers. There is no set number for any class of enshrinees, though between four and eight new members will be selected.
