Bruce Named Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2019 Finalist

The other finalists for the Hall of Fame include: Tight end Tony Gonzalez, wide receiver Isaac Bruce, running back Edgerrin James, safety Ed Reed, safety Steve Atwater, cornerback Ty Law, safety John Lynch, offensive tackle Tony Boselli, guard Steve Hutchinson, guard Alan Faneca, center Kevin Mawae, coach Don Coryell, coach Tom Flores.

The 15 Modern-era nominees will be presented to the 48-member Pro Football Hall of Fame Selection Committee during its annual meeting the day before the Super Bowl. Including the modern cap of five, between four and eight new members will be elected. Inductions are August 3 in Canton, Ohio. While with the Chiefs, Gonzalez was named to 10 Pro Bowls and earned five All-Pro nods. He made seven Pro Bowls, including two with the Oakland Raiders. He started at left cornerback in three Super Bowls, including the victories over the Rams - during which he returned a Kurt Warner interception 47 yards for a touchdown - and Panthers.

His departure to the Jets for the 2005 season after he refused to restructure his contract was his first of two tenures there, playing also with Kansas City and Denver before retiring after the 2009 season. Bailey also played for the Denver Broncos during his 15-year National Football League career.
