The Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2018 will officially be announced tonight at the NFL Honors.
But early reports suggest Brian Dawkins is among those elected to the class.
Source familiar with Hall of Fame voting: Brian Dawkins was elected. John Lynch, Boulder’s Tony Boselli will have to wait till next year. #9sports

Looks like Edgerrin James will miss out on a Hall of Fame bid this year. From what I’m gathering, five Modern-Era inductees will be Ray Lewis, Randy Moss, Terrell Owens, Brian Urlacher and Brian Dawkins.
James is a prime candidate next year. Look for Ed Reed & Tony Gonzalez too.

So far we know that Brian Urlacher, Brian Dawkins, Ray Lewis, Randy Moss and Terrell Owens made it to the Hall of Fame.
Randy Moss makes it on the first ballot, Terrell Owens had to wait.
