The Pro Football Hall of Fame announced their semifinalists for the class of 2016 Tuesday. When the Hall of Fame announced their 108 nominees, there were seven former Raiders among them. With the trimming to 25 semifinalists, just one remains -- RB Roger Craig.
The six who were cut from the list were T Jim Lachey, G Steve Wisniewski, LB Matt Millen, CB Eric Allen, CB Albert Lewis, HC Tom Flores. These former players join an already long list of Raiders snubs.
Craig spent most of his 11-year career with the 49ers, where he was named to 4 Pro Bowls and was a 1-time All Pro. He also got three Super Bowl rings in San Francisco. He then came to the Raiders for one season before spending the final two seasons of his career in Minnesota.
The Raiders still have quarterback Ken Stabler as a senior committee nominee.
