Reed finished his NFL career with 64 interceptions, seven returns for touchdowns, 11 forced fumbles, 13 fumble recoveries and two fumble return touchdowns, one punt return touchdown and three other returns for touchdowns.

Reed was named to nine Pro-Bowls, first-team All-Pro five times and the 2004 NFL Defensive Player of the Year. HIs 13 non-offensive touchdowns are fifth in NFL history, seven interceptions returns are 11th and 1,590 interceptions return yardage are first in NFL history. Reed should be a first ballot Hall of Famer.

Edgerrin James

Like Reed, James teamed with a former Miami Hurricanes alum as one of the NFL’s best units. James and Miami’s all-time leading receiver Reggie Wayne on the Indianapolis Colts.

James led the NFL in rushing his first two years in the league. He combined for 3,262 yards in 1999 and 2002. His 431 touches as a rookie also led the NFL. James finished in the top ten six times in rushing attempts, five times in rushing yards, four times in rushing touchdowns and all-purpose yards.

The Edge finished his NFL career with four Pro-Bowl appearances, a spot on the All-Pro team in 1999, 13th in NFL history with an average of 82.7 rushing yards per game, 15th in career yards from scrimmage with 15,610 and ninth all-time with 3,461 touches.

dark. Next. Miami Hurricanes are ninth all-time in Pro Football Hall of Famers

James is not the certainty for the Hall of Fame that Reed is. Working in his favor this year could be that he is the only of the 25 semifinalists that played running back.
