Former Houston Oilers linebacker Robert Brazile was elected to the NFL Hall of Fame Class of 2018.
He’s part of an eight-man class that will be inducted in Canton, Ohio in August.
The Mobile, Alabama native was drafted in 1975, and never missed a game during his ten-year career. He was voted NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year in 1975 and was a member of the All-Decade Team of the 1970’s. He was also selected for seven Pro Bowls and was named and All-Pro five times.
Brazile will become the fourth inductee from the “Love Ya Blue” Oilers who played for Coach Bum Phillips, joining Earl Campbell, defensive end Elvin Bethea and nose tackle Curley Culp. He also played with fellow Hall of Famers Bruce Matthews and Mike Munchak toward the end of his career.
Others selected for induction include inside linebacker Ray Lewis, wide receivers Terrell Owens and Randy Moss, inside linebacker Brian Urlacher, and safety Brian Dawkins. Brazile was selected by the senior committee, joining Green Bay guard Jerry Kramer and former general manager Bobby Beathard.
