As he awaits a Hall call former Ravens safety Ed Reed is staying true to himself

Other 2019 Hall of Fame inductees include Tony Gonzalez, Ed Reed, Champ Bailey, Ty Law, Johnny Robinson, Pat Bowlen and Gil Brandt.

Law is the first member of the Patriots' 18-year dynasty to actually be elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Reed, a Destrehan High product, was a nine-time Pro Bowl safety who made All-Pro six times and was also on the NFL's All-Decade Team for the 2000s.

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

In a 17-year career that ended with the 2013 season, Gonzalez caught 1,325 passes, the second most in National Football League history, for 111 touchdowns.

The most memorable and, arguably, the biggest play of his career came in Super Bowl XXXVI when he intercepted a Kurt Warner pass and took it 47 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter.

Law was a five-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro who won three Super Bowls with the Patriots.

Gonzalez was a 14-time Pro Bowl selection, and only Hall of Famer Jerry Rice (1,549) has more career receptions.

Bailey played five years in Washington and 10 in Denver over his 15-year National Football League career.

Still, he made three All-Pro teams, 12 Pro Bowls and a none-too-shabby 52 interceptions.

This marks the first time more than two defensive backs have made it in the same class.

Former center Kevin Mawae is the lone offensive lineman in the 2019 class. Mawae played for the Seattle Seahawks, Jets and Tennessee Titans over his 16-year career.

Robinson was chosen by the Dallas Texans in the first AFL draft. He's a member of the Chiefs Hall of Fame, and won Super Bowl IV with the club in 1970.

"From when I retired and found out they were going to have the Super Bowl here, I was like, well, that times out if I could be a first ballot - if I'm lucky enough to be a first ballot - it's going to be in Atlanta!"

Brandt spent 29 years with the Cowboys, where his keen eye for talent helped turn Dallas into "America's Team". He was part of LSU's 1958 national championship team. Helped Jets to division title and championship game appearance in first season in NY, 1998 ...
