Former Patriots CB Ty Law named Hall of Fame Semifinalist for Class of 2017

New, comments

Best of luck to the former Patriots defender!

The Pro Football Hall of Fame has announced their semifinalists for the Class of 2017 and it includes former Patriots great CB Ty Law. S John Lynch also spent a summer with the Patriots if New Englanders want to claim him from the Buccaneers and Broncos.

Law is a semifinalist for the third straight season. He has an uphill battle of reaching the finals, but it’s good that he’s remaining in consideration. I think he would have a difficult time making it over the likes of WR Terrell Owens, RB LaDainian Tomlinson, and RB Edgerrin James.

Law was a 2x First Team All Pro, 3x Super Bowl champion, and he was named 2nd Team All 2000s at cornerback. Law is tied with Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders with 53 career interceptions.

Best of luck to Law.
