Bears coach John Fox on Brian Urlacher: 'The best in the business'

Bears coach John Fox on Brian Urlacher: 'The best in the business'”

Wide receiver Randy Moss and linebackers Ray Lewis and Brian Urlacher were among the 108 players and coaches included in the modern-era nominees for the Pro Football Hall of Fame's 2018 class.

The roster of nominees consists of 53 offensive players, 38 defensive players, five special teams players and 12 coaches. Modern era nominees will be reduced to 25 semifinalists in November and, from there, to 15 finalists in January.

Urlacher retired on May 22, 2013 after a 13-year career. Fueled by a rare combination of size, speed and toughness, he was voted to eight Pro Bowls, was named NFL Rookie of the Year in 2000 and was selected NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2005.

Urlacher was a four-time All-Pro who helped the Bears win four division titles and reach the Super Bowl in 2006.

He's also the Bears all-time franchise leader in tackles (1,691), and holds the franchise single-season record for tackles in a season (153).

While Urlacher might not get inducted in his first year, considering how many other greats are up for election, he's bound to become the 28th Hall of Fame player in Bears' history. They are Moss, Lewis, Urlacher, defensive back Ronde Barber, wide receiver Donald Driver, wide receiver Steve Smith, center Matt Birk, offensive guard Steve Hutchinson, center Jeff Saturday, defensive lineman Richard Seymour and defensive lineman Kyle Vanden Bosch.

During Super Bowl week, finalists will be discussed among 48 voters, plus senior nominees Robert Brazile and Jerry Kramer and contributors nominee Bobby Beathard.
