Bill Belichick, Robert Kraft attend Hall of Fame ceremony for Randy Moss

Justin GreeneAug 05, 2018

And yes, the man known as T.O. later brought out a big bucket of popcorn.

This year's class includes linebacker Ray Lewis, wide receiver Randy Moss, contributor Bobby Beathard, linebacker Robert Brazile, safety Brian Dawkins, guard Jerry Kramer, linebacker Brian Urlacher and wide receiver Terrell Owens.

Owens went on to say the sport writers who select who gets into the Hall are not in alignment with what the HOF truly represents. "From the bottom of my heart, I know a lot of people out there and struggling".

"If I had to pick, it would be a combination of both guys", Rice said with a laugh.

Maybe nothing sums up Owen's career better than his impromptu reaction to a fan who yelled out "I love you" during his Hall of Fame acceptance speech on Saturday, via ESPN. I know I had chills listening to him talk and I know our guys did, too.

Owens said he'd like to start a conversation for change with the Hall of Fame voting process. "Whether it's three years or 45 years, you should get what you rightfully earned".

Only one person makes a speech in Canton to introduce an inductee.

Owens also explained exactly why he chose to have his own HOF ceremony. The university named a street after the Hall of Fame receiver.

"I have a little work to do here, but I'll be home as soon as I'm done, so you all can lay eyes on this gold jacket because it is ours", Moss added.

Throughout his entire National Football League career, former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens was never the flawless teammate. He also wore a "C" for Chattanooga pin on each lapel.

Owens became emotional when talking about his mother, Marilyn Owens Heard, and late grandmother, Alice Black.

For many, Owens was the very definition of a bad teammate.

Sure enough, Owens didn't hold back during his speech. Then Owens encouraged them not to be afraid to be themselves. He understands that some people were surprised by Owens' decision. "Someone that was always caring, kind-hearted", a resident said.

"I was proud to wear it for 13 years".

With Minnesota, the receiver went on to develop into one of the most (if not the most) exciting players the franchise has ever seen.
