It’s Super Bowl Sunday. And while the big game takes place later in the day, this weekend was also a time to celebrate some of the best to ever do it with the Pro Football Hall of Fame announcing its Class of 2021.
Other players who earned a Hall of Fame nod in their first-year of eligibility are former All-Pro defensive back Charles Woodson, and former Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson.
It was the ninth consecutive year that a first-year eligible player was voted into the Hall.
