Thursday afternoon the PFHOF released its list of nominees for the 2019 Hall of Fame class, featuring a handful of Raiders alumni. Bailey, who also dabbled on offense, had 52 career picks, made three All-Pro teams and, yes, also was on the all-decade team of 2000-2010.
The roster of nominees has 47 offensive players, 39 defensive players, five special-teams players and 11 coaches.
He finished his career with the most career receptions (1,325), receiving yards (15,127) and 100-yard receiving games (31) by a tight end in National Football League history, and the second-most touchdown receptions (111) behind only the Los Angeles Chargers' Antonio Gates (114). Most notably, the list of 102 modern-era nominees contains former Super Bowl champion Head Coach Tom Flores. Dolphin fans will recognize a few former fan favorites on the list.

Coast guard and fire brigade officials confirmed that the injuries sustained were not life-threatening. While so far, no one has been found, they said they were continuing their search.
But now they can celebrate a recent Pro Football Hall of Fame update. The finalists will consist of 15 Modern-Era finalists, the recently named Senior Finalist, Johnny Robinson, and the Contributor Finalists, Pat Bowlen and Gil Brandt. The Class of 2019 will be announced during the "NFL Honors" nationally broadcast award show that evening.
Between four and eight of those individuals will be immortalized in Canton next August.
