Terrell Davis selected to Hall of Fame

HOUSTON - It's one final salute for TD.

Former Broncos' running back Terrell Davis was selected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame Saturday, joining LaDanian Tomlinson and Kurt Warner in the class of 2017.

Already a member of the Broncos' ring of fame and Denver's all time leading rusher, Davis joins' the NFL's most elite club 11 years after becoming eligible and after three straight years of being a finalist.

Davis is the fifth Bronco to be elected to the Hall of Fame, following former quarterback turned general manager John Elway (inducted in 2004), tackle Gary Zimmerman (2008), running back Floyd Little (2010) and tight end Shannon Sharpe (2011).

Davis played just seven seasons with Denver, but he was a superstar when gracing the turf at Mile High.

He averaged 1,603 rushing yards during his first four seasons and ran for 2,008 yards in 1998.

His playoff performances helped John Elway and the Broncos earn a pair of Lombardi Trophies, with Davis rushing for 581 yards in four games during the 1997 playoffs and 468 yards in three playoff games in 1998. He was the engine that brought Denver their first two Super Bowl victories.

Davis carried the ball a total of 204 times in the postseason, rushing for 1,140 yards and scoring 12 touchdowns.
