Legendary San Diego Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson was selected to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame that happened on February 4th. He was a surefire pick to be nominated, as he currently holds the NFL single-season touchdown record with a total of 29 and ranks fifth in the all-time rushing yards record with a grand total of 13,684. He was glad to finally be made an official member of this prestigious Hall of Fame, and he had several other peers get in on the same night as he. Other big names to enter the 2017 Pro Football Hall of Fame include Kurt Warner, Terrell Davis, Jason Taylor and Morten Andersen.
Tomlinson entered the 2001 NFL draft and was selected as the fifth overall pick by the San Diego Chargers, with whom he played with for eight years before finishing off his last two years of his career with the New York Jets. Warner played some football in college, but went undrafted after leaving school in 1994 and ended up stocking shelves in a grocery store. Since no NFL team was willing to give him a chance decided to try out for an AFL team and ended up really making a name for himself as a star performer.
Davis entered the 1995 NFL Draft where he was selected by coach Mike Shanahan of the Denver Broncos in the 6th round where he stayed for his entire six-year career in the NFL. Taylor ended up taking part in the 1997 NFL Draft and was picked up by the Miami Dolphins with whom he stayed with for 10 years straight. Anderson spent 25 years on the field during his NFL career and played for a number of teams such as the New Orleans Saints, Atlanta Falcons, New York Giants, Kansas City Chiefs, and Minnesota Vikings.
The players were all glad to be nominated and selected to enter the 2017 Pro Football Hall of Fame which happened earlier this month, as they have all worked hard to get that far in their careers as athletes.
