  • Terrell Davis, Bruce Matthews among Hall nominees

    CANTON, Ohio -- Running back Terrell Davis and offensive lineman Bruce Matthews are among the first-time nominees for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

    Davis played just seven seasons in Denver, but the former sixth-round draft pick was a key part of the Broncos' two championship teams. He was the Super Bowl MVP for his three touchdowns against Green Bay in 1998.

    Matthews' skill and durability enabled him to play in 14 Pro Bowls during a 19-year career with the Houston Oilers and Tennessee Titans.

    Davis and Matthews are being considered with 109 other former players, coaches and contributors. The list, which was announced Friday, will be reduced to 15 finalists along with Cleveland Browns guard Gene Hickerson and Detroit Lions tight end Charlie Sanders, who were selected in August by the Hall of Fame's senior selection committee.

    The final vote will be in Miami on Feb. 3, the day before the Super Bowl. Three to six new members will be selected.

    The other first-time nominees are quarterback Randall Cunningham; running back Ricky Watters; offensive linemen Randall McDaniel, Mark Stepnoski and Steve Wisniewski; and defensive backs Eric Allen, LeRoy Butler and Carnell Lake.

    Recently retired commissioner Paul Tagliabue is a nominee for the second time, and wide receiver Michael Irvin and running back Thurman Thomas are among the finalists from last year who will be considered again.

    Hickerson for HOF!!!

    NFL must be tired of all the spam from Browns fans wanting him in. There's been a drive going on for some tim trying to get him recognized by the NFL for his accomplishments.

    Here's some info on him:

      Congrats to TD

      I think he should get in, its too early to tell, but he'll eventually get in. I think he'll get in after Emmitt Smith does. TD did give us a bunch of memories, the mile high salute, and helped John get 2 super bowls. Thanks TD!
