WR Tim Brown finally going into HOF

It has been tough for Tim Brown to break into the Gold-Jacket Club for the last six years, but the time has finally come that he can be called Hall of Famer Tim Brown.

The legendary Raiders wide receiver has finally been named to a Hall of Fame class, after being named a finalist for six straight years.

Brown went up against a much “easier” set of peers in order to finally get into Canton, including just one other wide receiver finalist in ex-Colt Marvin Harrison.

Brown ranks fifth all-time in receptions (1,094), sixth in receiving yards (14,934) and is tied for seventh all-time in receiving touchdowns with 100.

Harrison, who played with future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning, finished his illustrious 13-year-career with 1,102 receptions for 14,580 yards and 128 touchdowns.

Brown will join the rest of the 2015 Class in being inducted into Canton in August: Junior Seau, Charles Haley, Jerome Bettis, Will Shields, Bill Polian, Ron Wolf, Mick Tinglehoff.
