Another former Seahawk a favorite for the Hall of Fame next year

Another former Seahawk a favorite for the Hall of Fame next year

The Pro Football Hall of Fame released a list of candidates for potential selection in 2018, and three of the 80 Greatest Redskins are among them including Joe Jacoby. He just doesn't have Pro Football Hall of Fame eligibility - not yet.

During those golden Redskins years, Petitbon was the team's defensive coordinator. The selection committee will also determine that day if former Redskins general manager Bobby Beathard has enough of the vote to enter the Hall of Fame.

Mawae was a finalist past year and seemingly has gained traction in his bid for induction. However, it was his rise from being a seventh round draft choice by the Packers to his dominance in the game that was truly astounding.

This list of 108 players will be cut to 25 in November and further cut to 15 in January.

That group includes some of the biggest stars of the Titans era (1999-present) as well as some who played only briefly in Tennessee.

Donaldson was selected to the Pro Bowl four straight seasons from 1986 to 1989, and at the time of his departure from the Colts, he had played in the third most games in franchise history (184). He led the National Football League in rushing his first two seasons, was a fourth-time Pro Bowl selection and was named to the All-Decade team of the 2000s despite suffering a serious knee injury in 2001. Both Thomas and Webb will have to survive a lengthy selection process.

Smith's outstanding performance in 2009 also earned him his one and only trip to the Pro Bowl.


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

Jerry Kramer (G, 1958-68) has already been nominated as a finalist from the Senior Committee.

We'll find out if any of the Bills' nominees will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as part of their 2018 class in February.

The Selection Committee will meet on Saturday, Feb. 3, 2018 in Minneapolis, Minn.to elect the Class of 2018.

Enshrinement will be next August in Canton.

Defensive backs: CB Eric Allen, S Steve Atwater, CB/S Ronde Barber, S LeRoy Butler, S Brian Dawkins, S Rodney Harrison, CB Ty Law, CB Albert Lewis, S John Lynch, S Dennis Smith, CB Everson Walls, S Darren Woodson.
