Richard Seymour says he didn’t get into Hall of Fame

Chris Simms explains to Frank Gore exactly why he was on the fence about the RB being a Hall of Famer. Then Gore makes his own case.

We’re waiting to find out which players were elected to the Hall of Fame on Saturday, but we know a couple of players who won’t be part of this year’s class.

Former Patriots and Raiders defensive lineman Richard Seymour tweeted that he did not earn a spot this year. Seymour retweeted the message he sent in 2019 about not getting elected and added “I respect the process . . . 2021.”

Last year was the first time that Seymour was one of the 15 finalists whose candidacies were deliberated by the Pro Football Hall of Fame selection committee. He was a semi-finalist in 2018.

Former Packers safety LeRoy Butler announced he fell short of election earlier on Saturday afternoon. A maximum of five players can be elected to the Hall on Saturday. Fifteen players were elected to the Hall earlier this month as part of this year’s special Centennial Class.
