Six first-year eligible candidates - cornerback Ronde Barber, guard Steve Hutchinson, linebackers Ray Lewis and Brian Urlacher, wide receiver Randy Moss and defensive lineman Richard Seymour - are among the semifinalists.

Former Vikings center Matt Birk, who was among the initial list of 108 nominees this year, did not make the cut in his first year of eligibility.

Former Jaguars left tackle Tony Boselli and Jacksonville natives LeRoy Butler and Brian Dawkins were named Tuesday night as three of the 27 semifinalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Class of 2018. Fifteen years later, they could again share the NFL's brightest stage, earning the game's greatest individual honor at the same time. He also started 215 of the 241 games he played in. Lynch spent a total of 11 seasons with the Buccaneers, then four years with the Denver Broncos.

Right now, it's unclear whether James will be named a finalist and eventually inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Class 2018, but he's definitely deserving of such an eventual enshrinement into Canton, Ohio.

Vehicle hit pedestrians near Toulouse - Three injured
Two students at a French school have been badly injured in a vehicle attack, according to local media. The injured were Chinese students, including two who were seriously hurt in the incident.

Dawkins, a nine-time Pro Bowler and four-time first-team all-pro, made it to the final 10 last year in his first year of eligibility.

As the NFL's 12th all time career leading rusher with 12,246 rushing yards, James is the only non-active running back in the NFL's top 16 career rushing yards leaders that is not now enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He played 224 regular season games. Barber is the only player in league history to record at least 45 interceptions and at least 25 sacks. Moss is second all-time behind only Jerry Rice with 156 career receiving touchdowns.

Still, even after the injury, James ended up making the Pro Bowl two more times and rushed for over 1,000 yards in 5 following seasons.
