Isaac Bruce Named 2018 Pro Football Hall of Fame Finalist

Posted Jan 2, 2018

Former Rams wide receiver Isaac Bruce was named one of 15 finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.


Former Rams wide receiver Isaac Bruce has been named one of 15 modern-era finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame class of 2018.

Bruce was a key member of one of the most prolific offenses in NFL history, dubbed the Greatest Show on Turf. As part of the dynamic unit, he was instrumental in the Rams winning Super Bowl XXXIV — catching a 73-yard game winning touchdown in the club’s 23-16 victory.

The Memphis product played 16 NFL seasons (1994-2000), including an incredible 14-year campaign with the Rams before finishing his career in San Francisco. He is a four-time Pro Bowler and currently ranks No. 5 in NFL history with 15,208 yards receiving. Bruce also holds the record as the Rams all-time leader in yards receiving, having gotten there with four consecutive 1,000-yard seasons. Plus, he retired as the franchise leader in receptions and yards from scrimmage.

Bruce's No. 80 is retired for the Rams.

The Hall of Fame finalists will be presented to the 48-member Pro Football Hall of Fame selection Committee during its annual meeting on “Selection Saturday,” — the day before Super Bowl LII in Minnesota. From that point, the committee will determine which players will be inducted into the 2018 class.

To be elected, a finalist must receive a minimum positive vote of 80 percent during the annual selection meeting.
