Every NFL team's most likely future Hall of Famer: Tom Brady, Aaron Donald among 17 'locks'

  Every NFL team's most likely future Hall of Famer: Tom Brady, Aaron Donald among 17 'locks' Several prominent players made the cut, but a notable former league MVP did notUsing my interpretation of some of the unspoken criteria used when determining who gets into the Hall of Fame, I came up with a list of each NFL team's current player who has the best shot at being enshrined in Canton once their career is over. Here is the criteria I used when selecting the most likely players on each NFL team that could be considered a "lock" if their careers ended today.

The Steelers are hiring the former Giants and Buccaneers offensive coordinator, Mike Garafolo of NFL.com tweets. Sullivan, 53, will replace Matt Canada, who is now the Steelers’ OC.
