Brian Dawkins inducted into NFL Hall of Fame — Twitter reacts

Lakers News: Terrell Owens Thanks Kobe Bryant In 2018 Pro Football Hall Of Fame Speech For Setting Gold Standard Terrell Owens slams sportswriters during HOF acceptance speech

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.

The six-time Pro Bowler compiled 15,934 receiving yards and 153 receiving touchdowns on 1,078 career receptions.

But more than the support he got on the football field, Dawkins acknowledged the support he got off it, and encouraged others who may be struggling. Green passed away July 22, 2016.

Dawkins also delivered a powerful speech and, as he promised, cried during it. I knew I wanted to be a part of something.

"The majority of success I have had has come on the back end of pain", he said noting he had suicidal thoughts when he battled depression. They're life values. In applying what I learned in football for the rest of my life I've discovered we all win.

"He's always going to do it his way and what's beneficial to him and his family", Taylor said.

Owens also dropped some humor when a fan yelled out, "I love you, T.O".

"For her to understand what this jacket means to me ..."

Moss closed his speech with a statement to his mother that he considers them both of Hall of Famers.

It boasts one of our last great daily newspapers, the Canton Repository, the William McKinley Presidential Library, National First Ladies Library and of course is a bastion of antique and classic cars.

For Moss, he went on to set an National Football League record by hauling in 23 touchdown passes from Tom Brady the following season, leaving the Raiders and head coach Lane Kiffin with egg all over their faces.

"I love you too".

Brady had sent a message prior to the ceremony: "Congratulations to a great friend and teammate!" By holding his own ceremony, Owens heard short speeches from five coaches, including three former position coaches, with James Kirksey and Ray Sherman from the NFL. After Babich sat down, he heard Urlacher say the coach he called "Bullet Bob" was "like a father and a brother to me". "It has provided for my children and my family", Urlacher said, welling up and heaving a bit.

Also a senior committee nominee, Brazile was drafted sixth overall out of Jackson State, two picks behind his teammate. That after he helped the Eagles get to Super Bowl XXXIX the year before.
