The others were cornerbacks Champ Bailey and Ty Law, and safety Johnny Robinson.

Denver Broncos' owner Pat Bowlen was one of two contributors elected in the class of 2019.

Bailey played 15 years - five with Washington, then 10 more with Denver after the Redskins swapped him for Clinton Portis. His streak of 211 straight games with a catch from 2000-2013 is the longest ever by a tight end.

Gonzalez spent 12 years in Kansas City after being drafted by the Chiefs in 1997.


He finished his career in Ann Arbor with 154 tackles, six interceptions and 17 passes defended.

The greatest running back in Colts history, James holds the franchise record for career rushing yards (9,226), career rushing touchdowns (64) and rushing yards per game (96.1). Gonzalez was named to an astounding 14 Pro Bowls and six first-team All-Pro squads during his illustrious career.

Law, a former first-round pick, won three Super Bowls and was named first-team All-Pro twice.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame class of 2019 was announced on Saturday at the NFL Honors show.

Reed was one of the most risky defensive weapons in National Football League history.


Law played 10 of his 15 years in the National Football League in New England and is tied with Raymond Clayborn for the franchise record in interceptions with 36. He started for the Patriots in three Super Bowls all told, winning two.

Law made five Pro Bowls and was a member of the 2000s All-Decade team. The team still needs an assistant defensive backs coach.

Mawae, who played eight seasons with the Jets, also spent time with the Seahawks and Titans. He was one of the studs on Bill Parcells' Jets teams and he helped to block for an absurd seven 1,000-yard rushers during his eight seasons with NY. His 15,610 total yards from scrimmage ranks 11th all-time among running backs, and is more than Hall of Fame backs Eric Dickerson, Jerome Bettis and Jim Brown.

Brandt was the vice president of player personnel for the Cowboys from 1960-1988.

Robinson, a leader on the Chiefs team that won Super Bowl IV in 1970, played 12 seasons with the Dallas Texans and Kansas City.
