John Lynch is one step closer to being a Professional Football Hall of Famer.
Lynch, the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Denver Broncos safety, has moved onto the final 15 in the quest for making the Hall of Fame.
From 1993-2003, Lynch played for Tampa Bay as one of their standout players, winning a Vince Lombardi Trophy with the team in ’03.
In 2004, Lynch became a Bronco, playing through 2007 and retiring just before the start of 2008.
He racked up too many bone-jarring tackles to number, with 26 interceptions, 13 sacks and 10 forced fumbles over his storied career.
Currently, Lynch is a color commentator for FOX.
To this point, only four former Denver Broncos are in the Hall of Fame, the first of which was John Elway in 2004. The others are Floyd Little, Gary Zimmerman and Shannon Sharpe.
Terrell Davis, long deserving and overlooked, Karl Mecklenburg and Steve Atwater all were in the round of semifinalists, but none will become Hall of Famers this year.
