Zach Thomas does not make Hall of Fame cut

Zach Thomas does not make Hall of Fame cut

Other finalists this year include first-time nominees: cornerback Champ Bailey and tight end Tony Gonzalez.

The Senior Finalist is S Johnny Robinson, and the two Contributor Finalists are former Cowboys vice president of player personnel Gil Brandt and Broncos owner Pat Bowlen.

A maximum of eight new members can be elected, five from the modern-era group.

The Class of 2019 will be officially enshrined into the Hall of Fame during the spectacular Enshrinement Ceremony held inside Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium at Johnson Controls Hall of Fame Village in Canton on Saturday, Aug. 3. He went on to win three Super Bowls with the New England Patriots. Part of the NFL's all-decade team for the 2000s, Hutchinson worked alongside Jones, center Robbie Tobeck, right guard Chris Gray, and right tackle Sean Locklear to pave the way for Shaun Alexander's MVP season in 2005, when the Seahawks running back rushed for 1,880 yards, averaged 5.1 yards per carry, and scored 28 touchdowns, which was then an National Football League record.

Selected in the fifth round of the 1996 NFL Draft by Miami, he earned the starting middle linebacker job during training camp of his rookie year.

Lynch will find out if he's made the cut on the eve of Super Bowl LIII just prior to NFL Honors.

Mawae's Jets career was intertwined with that of Curtis Martin, the Jets' Hall of Fame running back who, behind the blocks thrown by No. 68 and his fellow linemen, ran for 100 yards in 44 games and 1,000 yards in seven consecutive seasons. He ended his career with one season in the desert in 2010, starting all 16 games.

Hopefully, we will get to see Zach Thomas in the Pro Football Hall of Fame before then.

Gonzalez played 17 seasons with the Chiefs and Falcons, but never made a Super Bowl. Unlike Urlacher, who played for a franchise in the the Chicago Bears which is synonymous with defense and specifically middle linebackers, Thomas played for a team more associated with offense as his career began in the final years of the Dan Marino era in Miami. He is seventh all time with 64 interceptions.

Lynch, a standout safety for Tampa Bay and Denver, becomes a finalist for the sixth straight year.
