The Other Steve Smith Nominated to Pro Football Hall of Fame

Steve Smith Giants

-Frank Cooney, founder and publisher of The Sports Xchange and NFLDraftScout.com, is in his sixth decade covering football and third decade as a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame selection committee.

Other nominees this year who spent some time in Green Bay with the Packers are Jeff Saturday, Seth Joyner, Keith Millard, and Sean Landetta.

Saturday played 14 seaons in the NFL, including his first 13 years in Indianapolis after he went undrafted in the 1998 NFL Draft. He would return to start all 16 games the following season.

Mitchell, meanwhile, is easily one of the best returners in National Football League history, as he racked up almost 20,000 return yards in his career, the first 10 seasons coming as a member of the Redskins.

Owens has been one of the most divisive players among Hall voters the last two seasons, making the Round of 15 each year by failing to advance beyond that despite ranking second all-time with 15,934 receiving yards. The modern era nominees will be reduced to 25 semifinalists in November and then to 15 finalists in January. 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.

Well, that's what happened when readers took a look at the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Class of 2018 nominee list, which was released Tuesday. His best seasons were with the Titans, when he collected 38 ½ of his 58 career sacks and earned his three Pro Bowl invitations.

You know, the Smith who played in the National Football League for six years for a variety of teams including the Super Bowl-winning Giants. Former Washington Redskins general manager Bobby Beathard is the contributor nominee.

Like a potential wide receiver 2018 class that could include Moss and Owens, the linebacker class could be just as impressive with Lewis and Urlacher as possible enshrinees.

The Selection Committee will meet in Minneapolis on February 3, 2018, the night before the Super Bowl, and elect 4-8 new members of the Hall of Fame. Both Thomas and Webb will have to survive a lengthy selection process. With only five spots available, putting another player in means kicking another player out. The class - between four and eight members - will then be announced at the NFL Honors event that evening. Lynch was also a nine-time Pro Bowler, and he's the only Hall-eligible player with at least nine Pro Bowls and a Super Bowl title who is not already enshrined in Canton.
