Tim Brown Again Shut Out of the Pro Football Hall of Fame

Another year, another year without Raider great Tim Brown going into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The former Raiders WR missed the cut early on Saturday, so his hopes were dashed pretty quickly. Brown though deserves serious consideration for the Hall. Brown himself broke the news to his own fans today via Twitter that he failed to make the hall.

” Raider nation!! Don’t bother to watch tonight they passed on me again!! In fact, no wrs made it again. Gotta get some of y’all in there!!”

Brown holds the NFL record for most the consecutive seasons with 75 or more catches, and even at 35 years old, he became the oldest player to return a punt for a touchdown.

It was back on December 21st, 1997 the receiver passed Pro Football Hall of Famer Fred Biletnikoff for the top spot on the Raiders all-time receiving list after catching a 20-yard pass from Jeff George in the first quarter of the game between the Raiders and Jaguars.

In December of 2002 he joined Jerry Rice and Cris Carter, becoming only the third player in NFL history to catch 1,000 passes.

Brown should get in, but then again, with two other dominant WR’s missing the cut, you just can’t tell when it may happen. Or if it will.
