The Pro Football Hall of Fame has released their list of 108 modern-era nominees for the class of 2018. Among them are ten former Raiders. Those nominees are quarterback Rich Gannon, running back Roger Craig, wide receiver Randy Moss, guard Steve Wisniewski, defensive linemen Richard Seymour, La’Roi Glover, and Greg Townsend, cornerbacks Eric Allen and Albert Lewis, and Head Coach Tom Flores.
This is the first year of eligibility for Richard Seymour and Randy Moss.
The most deserving of these Raiders players is probably Tom Flores who won two Super Bowls as a head coach with the Raiders and was the league’s first ever minority head coach. And yet he continues to get snubbed year after year.
And yet there are still several notable Raiders snubs from the nominees.
Of these nominees, 15 modern-era finalists will be eventually chosen and presented on the day before Super Bowl LII. They will be joined by recently named Senior Finalists, Robert Brazile and Jerry Kramer, and the Contributor Finalist, Bobby Beathard.
From there, between four and eight new members will be selected for enshrinement into the Hall of Fame next August.
Not that the fan vote has any bearing on who is chosen, but they want your clicks and if you’d like to provide them, you can vote right here.
