Former Viking Randy Moss inducted into Hall of Fame

Lakers News: Terrell Owens Thanks Kobe Bryant In 2018 Pro Football Hall Of Fame Speech For Setting Gold Standard

Headlined by wide receiver Randy Moss and linebacker Ray Lewis, those former players and executives were officially inducted Saturday night in Canton, Ohio.

With a passionate 33-minute speech in which he strolled around the stage, ad libbed, praised and joked, spoke of sacrifice, love, glory and overcoming the odds, Ray Lewis entered the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

"Many of you are probably wondering why we're here, instead of Canton", Owens said.

Throughout his entire National Football League career, former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens was never the ideal teammate.

Eagles safety Brian Dawkins perhaps drew the largest following in the crowd - based on the eye test of seeing green No. 20 jerseys - but Bears fans made their presence felt.

"If you checked your pride at the door and are not ashamed ... all my teammates, coaches, equipment managers, trainers - if you're in attendance today - I want to thank you because it doesn't take one, it takes all 11 of us", Moss added. He said his mother lifted his spirits when he was bypassed by the Hall of Fame twice.

"I was not the biggest, the strongest or fastest, but my goals were clear", he said. Not for one day did I not think God was with me. Owens claims he's taking a stance because there's a flaw in Hall of Fame voting process.

Having only been retired from the sport for two years, Bryant has yet to get his invitation to the Hall of Fame. Once the process is whittled down to the top five, a candidate needs 80 percent of the vote.

Urlacher turned his Hall of Fame enshrinement into a Bears family reunion and made one thing obvious for everyone to see: He's all grown up now. "Whether it's three years or 45 years, you should get what you rightfully earned". "From the bottom of my heart, I know a lot of people out there and struggling. I never would've imagined I would be standing here tonight", said Urlacher.

Former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis dances beside his bust as he delivers his induction speech at the Pro Football Hall of Fame Saturday, Aug. 4, 2018, in Canton, Ohio. They're life values. In applying what I learned in football for the rest of my life I've discovered we all win. "We are eight of 318 of the greatest players to ever play the game, and that's truly wonderful".

"He's always going to do it his way and what's beneficial to him and his family", Taylor said.

"All of those individual awards don't really mean anything to me", Moss said.

Owens joined the Cowboys in 2006 after a falling out with the Philadelphia Eagles.

The six-time Pro Bowler compiled 15,934 receiving yards and 153 receiving touchdowns on 1,078 career receptions. He portrayed himself as misunderstood.

Kramer said he knew his request for an $8,000 salary was too low when the immediate response came back, "OK, sign here". I love everything about football. "You blessed me", Dawkins told Thomas. I just love competing, competition is in my DNA.
