Broncos fans: It’s about time Bowlen, Bailey got Hall of Fame nod

Former Jets center Kevin Mawae was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday. He's now second all time in receptions, sixth all time in receiving yards and eighth in receiving touchdowns.

Gonzalez spent 12 years with the Kansas City Chiefs and his final five seasons with the Atlanta Falcons. He played in 203 regular-season games and made 53 interceptions, returning seven for touchdowns.

Eight new names will be enshrined into the Hall of Fame on August 3rd, 2019 in Canton, Ohio.

Others who will be inducted in August are former Chiefs and Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez, ex-Redskins and Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey, former Chiefs safety Johnny Robinson, longtime Broncos owner Pat Bowlen and former Cowboys executive Gil Brandt. Brandt helped build one of the most dominant franchises in sports along with Hall of Famers Tex Schramm and Tom Landry. Bailey recorded 52 interceptions in his career abd racked up 18 in two seasons (2005-06), the most in the National Football League in over 20 years.

Reed, a nine-time Pro Bowl selection, teamed with Hall of Fame linebacker Ray Lewis on some of Baltimore's stout defenses. He was also named first-team All-Pro six times, with two second-team honors thrown in for good measure.

In fact, the shutdown might have increased the number of jobs added as furloughed workers sought out part-time jobs. The economy needs to create roughly 100,000 jobs per month to keep up with growth in the working-age population.

"From when I retired and found out they were going to have the Super Bowl here, I was like, well, that times out if I could be a first ballot - if I'm lucky enough to be a first ballot - it's going to be in Atlanta!"

Mawae was an eight-time Pro Bowl player and a six-time first-team All-Pro. Law had two one-year stints with the Jets, the more memorable one coming in 2005 when he led the National Football League with 10 interceptions.

Robinson was chosen by the Dallas Texans in the first AFL draft.

To be eligible for enshrinement, modern-era players and coaches must have last played or coached more than five seasons ago.

Law started in four different AFC Championship Games and had the famous score against the Rams to help kick off the Patriots dynasty during the 2002 Super Bowl. Denver has won three Super Bowls under his leadership. He blocked for Hall of Fame running back Curtis Martin in all of his seven 1,000-yard seasons with the Jets.
