CANTON, OH (KCBD) - Former Red Raider Zach Thomas will have to wait another year for his chance to get into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Yesterday afternoon, the Pro Football Hall of Fame made their cuts from 25 semifinalists to 15 finalists – and Zach Thomas wasn’t one of them.
The 15 finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame are former cornerback Champ Bailey, safety Ed Reed and former tight end Tony Gonzalez, running back Edgerrin James, wide receiver Isaac Bruce, cornerback Ty Law, safeties Steve Atwater and John Lynch, defensive lineman Richard Seymour, offensive linemen Tony Boselli, Alan Faneca, Steve Hutchinson, Kevin Mawae, and coaches Don Coryell and Tom Flores.
Over his NFL career, Thomas played for the Dolphins from 1996 through 2007 and then spent the 2008 season with the Dallas Cowboys.
Thomas will be eligible again for the Hall of Fame in 2020.
