Richard Mackson-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire
The Pro Football Hall of Fame put out their list of Hall of Fame nominees today. Among the 127 names on it, 12 were former Raiders.
The list includes a head coach, front office man, and ten former players. Many of whom had Hall of Fame careers with the Raiders, others who earned their way into the Hall of Fame elsewhere and just so happened to have worn Silver and Black for a season or a few.
Here is the list:
Head Coach Tom Flores
Executive Ron Wolf
Wide Receiver Tim Brown
Running Back Roger Craig
Tight End Todd Christensen
Offensive Guard Steve Wisniewski
Offensive Tackle Jim Lachey
Defensive Tackle Ted Washington
Defensive Tackle Sam Adams
Defensive Tackle Warren Sapp
Cornerback Albert Lewis
Cornerback Eric Allen
Just as notable as those nominated are those who were left off the list altogether. Wide receiver Cliff Branch, punter Ray Guy, quarterback Ken Stabler, quarterback Jim Plunkett, center Dave Dalby, cornerback Lester Hayes, and safety Jack Tatum. I guess the nominating committee got tired of pretending they would actually vote any of them in.
