A few former Dolphins nominated for 2019 Hall of Fame class


The Pro Football Hall of Fame announced a list on Thursday of 102 players and coaches for their modern-era Hall of Fame class of 2019, and several former Redskins are on the list.

Sharpe had 169 career receptions, 2,497 receiving yards and 17 career touchdowns. The Modern-Era Finalists will be trimmed during the meeting from 15 to 10 and then from 10 to 5. From the great Al Davis to Jim Otto, Mike Haynes, Howie Long, Dave Casper, and John Madden, the Raiders have one of the most-storied histories in the National Football League, and in 2019 the team has a chance to add more names to the hallowed halls. The first Latino head coach to ever win a Super Bowl took over in 1979 and helped lead the Raiders to two championships in the early 80s.

The roster of nominees consists of 47 offensive players, 39 defensive players, five special teams players and 11 coaches.

Bailey began his career with Washington in 1999 as the seventh overall draft choice.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame welcomed four first-year eligible players: tight end Tony Gonzalez, linebacker London Fletcher, cornerback Champ Bailey and safety Ed Reed. Senior Finalist Johnny Robinson, who spent his entire career with the Texans/Chiefs franchise from 1960-71, and Contributor Finalists Pat Bowlen and Gil Brandt will also be included in the voting.

The 2019 Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony will be held next August in Canton, Ohio.
