"Brian Urlacher sat patiently with his family in his Minneapolis hotel room Saturday afternoon and even though he left the «Do Not Disturb» sign on his door there was a knock. When he opened the door he was greeted by Pro Football Hall of Fame president David Baker.
"I hope you don't mind, we saw the 'Do Not Disturb' sign on your door," Baker told Urlacher as he broke the news that he would be joining the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
The super-talented 2018 class also includes Brian Dawkins, Ray Lewis, Randy Moss and Terrell Owens. Jerry Kramer and Robert Brazile, both senior-committee players, and former Redskins and Chargers general manager Bobby Beathard will join them in Canton.
‘‘You see that accumulation of phenomenal players, and, just, it's amazing,'' Urlacher said after getting the news, per the Chicago Sun-Times. ‘‘To be a part of that is very humbling. I never expected to get this far in my football career.''
Urlacher becomes the 35th member of the Hall of Fame who has been a member of the Chicago Bears organization.
