Steven Jackson, Torry Holt among nominees for Hall of Fame’s Class of 2023

For the third year in a row, Steven Jackson and Torry Holt are among the nominees for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. A total of 129 modern-era nominees were announced on Tuesday, with Jackson and Holt representing the Rams. None of the first-time nominees played with the Rams, but that group includes Joe Thomas, Dwight Freeney and Darrelle Revis, all of whom should make it in at some point, if not on the first ballot.

Jackson is in his third year of eligibility but has been unable to make it past the first stage of voting. Holt, on the other hand, has been a semifinalist eight years in a row and a finalist in each of the last three years.

Jackson rushed for 10,138 yards in nine years with the Rams, proving to be the model of consistency by rushing for at least 1,000 yards in eight straight years. He finished his career with the Falcons and Patriots, from 2013-2015, totaling 11,438 yards during his time in the NFL, including those three seasons.

Holt led the NFL in receiving twice and also had at least 1,000 yards in eight straight years. He was an All-Pro in 2003 and was a seven-time Pro Bowler, spending 10 seasons with the Rams and totaling 12,660 yards with 74 touchdowns.
