Little was the longest nominee in the running for the NFL Pro Football Hall of Fame and this time he is finally inducted.

Little even made fun when NFL Network host Rich Eisen asked him about what made him think he’d finally get his chance, “This is the 44th Super Bowl. I wore the number 44. Dick LeBeau wore the number 44. There are 44 voters and there is the 44th President. So for all those things here, it’s really, really good.”

NFL stars Jerry Rice and Emmitt Smith were the ones who stand out as the first consult to the NFL Hall of Fame. They did not even need to campaign because their achievements speak for themselves.

Jerry Rice dominated every receiver-related statistic and owning the all-time touchdown record. Smith on the other hand won three Super Bowls with the Dallas Cowboys and is the league’s all-time rushing leader.

All seven NFL legends will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
