Two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback Jim Plunkett makes the list again, as does his former Raiders coach Tom Flores. Also eligible for the 2011 class are punter Ray Guy, receiver Tim Brown, tight end Todd Christensen, offensive lineman Steve Wisniewski, and cornerback Lester Hayes.
Notable non-Raiders making the list on their first year of eligibility include Deoin Sanders, Jerome Bettis, and Marshall Faulk.
Tim Brown was a finalist on the 2010 Hall of Fame ballot, but did not make the final cut.
Joe Kukura is a freelance writer who somehow feels "more old" hearing that Jerome Bettis and Deion Sanders are Hall of Fame-eligible.
