Tuesday the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced their 129 nominees for the class of 2023. Among those nominees are ten players who at one time suited up in Silver & Black.

Those nominees are as follows:

CB Eric Allen
LB Navorro Bowman
DI La’Roi Glover
P Shane Lechler
CB Albert Lewis
CB Terry McDaniel
WR Andre Rison
ED Pat Swilling
ED Justin Tuck
G Steve Wisniewski

This is Lechler’s first year of eligibility, and thus his first time among the nominees. He is quite possibly the most deserving of the Raiders legends on this list as his career numbers put him as the best punter in NFL history.

Punters have notoriously had a difficult time getting the call to Canton. Ray Guy has long been widely considered the most legendary punter in the game, but even he was unable to get in until the Senior Committee named him a finalist some 23 years after his first year of eligibility.

Several other names on this list have been among the nominees for several years only to be knocked off as they trimmed the list to get to the handful of inductees.
