On Wednesday, the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced its finalists for the Class of 2017. Among the 15 Modern-Era finalists was former New England Patriots great Ty Law.

Law, 42, was drafted out of the University of Michigan with the 23rd overall pick in the 1995 draft. He was elected to the Patriots Hall of Fame in 2014. The playmaking cornerback spent 10 seasons in New England (1995-2004) followed by two seasons with the New York Jets (2005, 2008), two with the Kansas City Chiefs (2006-07) and one with the Denver Broncos (2009).

During his tenure, Law was a highly productive and decorated player. His Patriots resume includes:

  • 3-time Super Bowl champion
  • 2-time All-Pro selection
  • 4-time Pro Bow selection
  • NFL 2000s All-Decade team
  • 2-time Patriots All-Decade team (1990s & 2000s)
  • 36 interceptions (T-1st in franchise history) for 583 return yards (1st) and 6 returned for touchdowns (1st)

The 48-person PFHOF Selection Committee will meet in Houston on Saturday, February 4, 2017. The Class of 2017 will be officially announced on the eve of the Super Bowl during the "NFL Honors" primetime television special.

His impact on other corners he played with in each stop is what he was as valuable for as much as his own play.

Very good point, Frank! He wasn't a bad postseason player either. ;)
