Bruce Irvin Womens Jersey A year ago, Brock Osweiler was in high demand during NFL free agency despite only seven career starts. The quarterback rejected a starting position with the Super Bowl-champion Broncos to sign a four-year, $72 million contract ($37 million guaranteed) with the Texans.
What a difference a year makes for the NFL’s Underachiever of the Year.

A total of 119 players have been elected by the BBWAA and the other 195 Hall of Famers were elected through various veterans-type committees. Of those 195, 35 are executives, 23 are managers and 10 are umpires, which means 127 players have been elected through secondary means. Lots of smart baseball people will try and convince you that matters.
I wanted to know what the Hall of Fame thought about all this, so I emailed Jon Shestakofsky, the Vice President of Communications and Education at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. This is what I asked him: Does the Hall of Fame acknowledge any difference between players elected by the BBWAA and players elected through any of the other various committees? If so, how is that acknowledged? And, if not, why isn’t it acknowledged?
Shestakofsky’s response: Each of the 314 plaques in Cooperstown represent members of the same elite fraternity — the National Baseball Hall of Fame. From Induction Ceremonies to how the plaques read and are displayed, those elected via the BBWAA ballot or any other committees receive the same treatment once they are selected. In short, all Hall of Famers are created equal.
