Emmitt Smith, Jerry Rice, 5 Others Join Hall of Fame: This year's NFL Hall of Fame inductees are Russ Grimm, Rickey Jackson, Dick LeBeau, Floyd Little, John Randle, Jerry Rice and Emmitt Smith. Links go to local coverage from their hometown papers. Smith and Rice were in their first year of eligibility. Little and LeBeau were veterans' picks, and LeBeau went in as a player, not a coach. Kudos to MSNBC for finding a picture of Smith and Rice in Cardinals and Seahawks uniforms, respectively.
