Bucs' legends among 2018 Pro Football Hall of Fame semifinalists

Pro Football Hall of Fame: Ex-Wolverines Steve Hutchinson, Ty Law semifinalists

Ranking the 2018 Hall of Fame semifinalists: Randy Moss on top

"If you overplay him, he's going to make you look ridiculous", said former 5x First-Team All-Pro and 7x Pro Bowl Miami Dolphins inside linebacker Zach Thomas of Edgerrin James, as the running back he least enjoyed facing.

Moss played for the Vikings from 1998-2004 and in 2010. He played for them for 13 years.

Last August, Jason Taylor became the 10th former Dolphins player to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Twenty-seven modern-era semifinalists (from an initial pool of 108) have moved on to the next round of the selection process, with a cut-down to 15 finalists coming in January, followed by the selection of the gold-jacket recipients.

The Hall announced on Tuesday that Law has been named a semifinalist for the fourth time.

As the NFL's 12th all time career leading rusher with 12,246 rushing yards, James is the only non-active running back in the NFL's top 16 career rushing yards leaders that is not now enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Ronde Barber made the semifinalist cut in his first year of eligibility. Lynch spent a total of 11 seasons with the Buccaneers, then four years with the Denver Broncos.

"Jim's defense was designed around Dawk and his playmaking ability, " former Eagles safety Quintin Mikell, who played alongside Dawkins, said previous year.

The former University of New Mexico star, Urlacher, spent 13 seasons in the National Football League with the Chicago Bears. In the NFL's all-time ranks, Owens is eighth in receptions (1,078), second in receiving yards (15,934) and third in receiving touchdowns (153). Only Jerry Rice has more (22,895). He not only played, but had nine catches for 122 yards in the Eagles' 24-21 loss to the Patriots.
