Career sacks leader Bruce Smith, versatile defensive back Rod Woodson and four others made the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday, while former commissioner Paul Tagliabue was denied entry for the third straight year.

Joining Smith, who led Buffalo to four straight Super Bowl appearances, and Woodson are longtime Bills owner Ralph Wilson; the late Chiefs linebacker Derrick Thomas; former Minnesota guard Randall McDaniel; and the late Bob Hayes, a standout wide receiver for Dallas and the 1964 Olympic 100 meters gold medalist.

Inductions will be Aug. 8 in Canton, Ohio.

Bob Hayes going in makes me happy, even if he was a Cowboy.

I know, but to be elected 1st ballot is a honor in itself........I find it kinda hard to believe that they couldn't find a spot for a player who rewrote the TE record books at the time he retired.

They're a-holes. There's no reason for voting in Derrick Thomas this late in his candidacy.

My favorite of the group is Derrick Thomas, one of my favorite players of all time. I'm happy he made it into the HOF.

Carter was a lock until he went to work for ESPN. :D

Seriously, I don't know how Carter isn't in this class.
