Pro Football Hall of Fame Inductions: Former Pitt Player Curtis Martin Misses Cut

The Pro Football Hall of Fame inductions were recently announced and while former Pitt running back Curtis Martin reached the final round of cuts, he missed out induction. Take a look at who did make the cut.

Seven players will be inducted including cornerback Deion Sanders, running back Marshall Faulk, tight end Shannon Sharpe, defensive end Richard Dent, linebacker Les Richter, linebacker Chris Hanburger, and NFL Films founder Ed Sabol.

Martin took being left off the team pretty well:

Martin tweeted his thoughts Saturday night, saying, "I want to thank every member of the voting committee for considering me as a top 10 finalist this year. I think you guys pick (sic) a great class!"

Had Martin been inducted, Pitt would have moved up to a tie for fifth among colleges with the most Pro Football Hall of Fame inductees. This year's class was strong, but as the fourth leading rusher in NFL history, it should only be a matter of time until Martin gets in.
