Every year, many amazing athletes find their way into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. To be a member of this elite group is something many players strive for in their career. Yet, so many astonishing players have been surprisingly left out of this establishment. We take a look at 10 football stars who are still waiting for this true moment of glory.
