The gifts included cash, prostitutes, entertainment costs, jewelry, and even, in one case, an abortion for a stripper whom a player impregnated.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame welcomed seven new members Saturday night, headlined by players Deion Sanders, Shannon Sharpe, Marshall Faulk, and Richard Dent. Chris Hanburger, Les Richter, and Ed Sabol were also enshrined.
