Unless Tanier is predicting a career rennaisance for AB, I would be flat out stunned if he made it. He has TO level drama + Greg Hardy level reputation but without the overwhelming career numbers of TO. Lets be honest, replace TO's career production with Reggie Wayne's and TO is not getting into the hall of fame
I am not a fan of Hines Ward or Boldin making it. Boldin's accomplishments are nice, but that screams ring of honor guy; not hall of famer.
And Hines Ward, if he plays for another team besides the Steelers, is not going to get the reputation or cache he has today.
