The two biggest names on here are Junior Seau and Jerome Bettis. Current Patriots quarterback and Patriots head coach Bill Belichick had the following to say about Seau.
“The one word that comes to me when I think of Junior in life and football [is] passion,” Bill Belichick said. “He’s a very passionate guy, lot of energy, lot of enthusiasm.”
“He was a phenomenal player, teammate, friend,” Tom Brady said. “His attitude was infectious. He brought enthusiasm every day to practice. He showed up in the room and he’d be the first person there at 6 in the morning on the treadmill running, going into his 18th year in the league.
“He had a love for life and he’s missed by all of his family and friends, and certainly by me and the guys that had a chance to be around him. He was a special person. If he can’t make it, nobody can. He’s truly one of a kind. It was a privilege playing with him,” Brady said.
A big congratulations to the Pro Football Hall of Fame class of 2014! Very well deserved.
