He scored a record 2,544 points in his career and made 79.7 percent of the field goals (565 of 709) he attempted throughout his career. However, it didn't take long for that time limit to be blown away as former Seattle Seahawks safety Kenny Easley went almost 20 minutes before the Hall of Fame apparently cut off his teleprompter.

He gave the Denver Broncos their much-needed running game from 1995 through 2001, and after announcing his presence with 1,117 yards as a rookie, he became one of the NFL's best backs. He ran for 1,236 yards as a rookie, and he never failed to reach that mark in his first seven seasons.

He followed with 1,538 yards in 1996, and then had 1,750 and 2,008 yards the next two seasons. He led the National Football League with 21 rushing TDs that year in helping lead Denver to a second consecutive Super Bowl victory. Easley was selected to the Pro Bowl five times and to the AP's First-Team All-Pro for three straight years. He won the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year award in 2006.

Jones bought the Cowboys in 1989 and restored a winning tradition to the franchise. Dallas has advanced to the postseason 13 times under Jones.

Taylor registered double-digit sack totals six times over an eight-year span from 2000-07. He also recorded a league-tying 29 opponents' fumbles recovered in his career. Warner became an accurate and prolific passer throughout his career, completing 65.5 percent of his passes for 32,344 yards with 208 touchdowns.

Warner went from being undrafted to being a two-time NFL MVP (1999 and 2001 with the Rams). Warner was the first quarterback to throw for 300 yards or more in three Super Bowls.

The group was officially voted into the Hall back in February, but they won't officially be enshrined until they take the stage at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame weekend kicked off with the Hall of Fame Game.
