Former Rams players Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt have been named among 27 modern-era semifinalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame class of 2018.
The Hall of Fame semifinalists list will be reduced to 15 finalists in January. From there, those 15 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.
The Rams duo was part of one of the most prolific offenses in NFL history, dubbed the Greatest Show on Turf — a group that was instrumental for the Rams in winning Super Bowl XXXIV.
Bruce played 16 NFL seasons (1994-2009), including 14 years with the Rams before finishing his career in San Francisco. He is a four-time Pro Bowler and currently ranks 4th in NFL history with 15,208 yards receiving. Bruce also holds the record as the Rams all-time leader in receptions, with four consecutive 1,000 yard seasons.
Holt played 11 NFL seasons (1999-2009), including ten years with the Rams before finishing his career in Jacksonville. He is a seven-time Pro Bowler, holds multiple NFL records including consecutive seasons with at least 1,300 receiving yards (6) and currently ranks 16th in NFL history with 13,382 yards receiving.
