鈥?One of the great leaders football has seen Chase Edmonds Jersey Elite , Ray Lewis used his Pro Football Hall of Fame induction speech to call for more enlightened leadership in the United States.The last of the seven members of the class of 2018 on hand to be enshrined, Lewis eschewed notes and the lectern, instead strolling along the stage and passionately urging his listeners to come together.“Are you living every day to make this world better?” Lewis asked Saturday night at the end of his 33-minute oratory, often invoking the teachings of Martin Luther King. “Think what we can do if we work together as a country … teaching our nation to love each other again.“It’s how we react to the challenges in our life that shows our greatness. How do we execute that dream? Who will answer that knock on the door in the middle of the night? And it has to start right now. We need people willing to fight for what is good and what is right.”Turning to the 140 Hall of Famers on the stage, he told them: “We can go from being legends to building a legacy bigger than football, bigger than sports. Look at what unites us … the answer is simple, love. Hope, faith and love, and the greatest is love.”Lewis was joined by Randy Moss, Brian Dawkins, Brian Urlacher, Jerry Kramer, Robert Brazile and Bobby Beathard as inductees at the hall ceremony.One of the best linebackers in NFL history, Lewis won two Super Bowls with the Ravens; he often chanted “BALTIMORE!” during his speech.“Tell me something can’t be done is like pouring lighter fluid on an open flame,” said Lewis, a two-time Defensive Player of the Year who won a second Super Bowl for the 2012 season 鈥?coming back from a torn triceps 鈥?then retired. He was the MVP of the 2001 title game.“I came back, and boy did I come back,” Lewis said. “When you walk off the last time with that thing, that Lombardi, it’s a confirmation I am living proof of the impossible.”A first-year nominee Chase Utley Jersey , Lewis was selected 26th overall in the 1996 draft 鈥?what were other teams thinking? He wasn’t even Baltimore’s first choice: Jonathan Ogden was, and the big tackle made the Hall of Fame in 2013.His impact was immediate, both on the field, in the locker room, and even in pregame introductions, when his “squirrel dance” fired up fans and teammates alike. He and Ogden even did a short version on the stage.Lewis was the first player with 40 sacks and 30 interceptions in a career. An eight-time All-Pro and inside linebacker on the 2000s NFL All-Decade Team, he had a franchise-record 2,643 career tackles.Dawkins also delivered a powerful speech and, as he promised, cried during it.One of the hardest-hitting and most versatile safeties in NFL history, Dawkins stared at his bust and nodded his approval to the crowd.“The majority of success I have had has come on the back end of pain,” he said noting he had suicidal thoughts when he battled depression. “On the other side of it, all of a sudden I became better. There’s a purpose for my pain.“I have grown leaps and bounds because of the things I went through. For those going through this now, there is hope on the other side. Keep moving, keep pushing through.”Dawkins was the leader of an Eagles defense that made four straight NFC championship games and one Super Bowl. Voted to the 2000s NFL All-Decade Team and a five-time All-Pro, Dawkins intercepted passes in 15 consecutive seasons and had 37 picks overall. He averaged nearly 100 tackles a year and spotlighted his versatility as the first player in NFL history to get a sack, interception, fumble recovery and touchdown catch (on a screen pass) in a game, against Houston in 2002.Urlacher became a record-28th Chicago Bear inducted into the hall. A first-year nominee who filled the tradition of great middle linebackers in the Windy City so brilliantly, Urlacher actually was a safety at New Mexico. Chicago selected him ninth overall in the 2000 draft and immediately converted him to linebacker. He spent two weeks in training camp on the outside Cassius Marsh Jersey Elite , then was moved inside 鈥?for 13 spectacular seasons.“I love everything about football: the friendships, the coaches, the teachers, the challenges, the opportunity to excel. I loved going to work every day for 13 years,” said the 2000 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year and 2005 Defensive Player of the Year, a season in which Urlacher had 171 tackles.The five-time All-Pro and member of the 2000s NFL All-Decade Team even did some work on special teams.But it was in the heart of the defense where he shone.“The most coveted position for a defensive player to play is middle linebacker for the Chicago Bears,” said Urlacher, who had to hold back tears several times. “Just think about it. I hope over my 13 seasons I made you Bears fans proud.”Another first-year nominee, the 6-foot-4, 210-pound Moss brought the perfect combination of height, speed, soft hands and agility to Minnesota as the 21st overall draft pick in 1998 after a rocky college career. His 69 receptions, 17 for touchdowns, and 1,313 yards helped the Vikings go 15-1 and earned him Offensive Rookie of the Year honors.That was just the start for the eccentric but always dynamic Moss. When he finally hooked up with an elite quarterback, he caught a record 23 TD passes from Tom Brady in New England’s perfect 2007 regular season.Moss rubbed the face and top of his bust, then delivered a sermon worthy of any church or synagogue. He paid tribute to his family, to the fans of his five teams, and to his roots in West Virginia 鈥?he promised he would return to his hometown of Rand on Sunday to show off his gold jacket.“To my gold jacket brothers Authentic Justin Jones Jersey , I vow I will wear it proudly,” Moss said.One of those Hall of Fame brothers, Terrell Owens , declined to attend. Instead, he held his own celebration at his college Running back Mark Ingram was a late arrival to the New Orleans Saints' offseason program and he'll be a late arrival for the regular season as well.
But he says he's not behind schedule and will hit the ground running when he finishes a four-game suspension to start the season.
Ingram, who has rushed for more than 1,000 yards each of the past two seasons, is being disciplined for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancers.
Ingram skipped New Orleans' voluntary OTAs, but participated in the first day of the team's mandatory three-day minicamp Tuesday. He said his absence wasn't a holdout as he enters the final year of his contract.
"The main reason I wasn't here for OTAs is I wanted to train on my own this offseason and switch up my offseason regimen this year," Ingram said after practice.
"I felt like there were things that I wanted to work on personally that I could get done better by myself. Noting against our program.
"There were a number of things I could focus on 鈥?my speed, my explosion, keeping my weight down, taking care of my body. I feel like the stuff I was doing while I was away made me a better player. I've been here seven years. I know our offense. As you get older you know exactly what your body needs to be its best."
Ingram said he kept Saints coach Sean Payton and general manager Mickey Loomis informed of what he was doing as he worked out with his father, former NFL player Mark Ingram, in the Boca Raton, Fla., area as he has throughout his seven-year career.
"I think he's in good shape," Payton said. "It's good to see him out there."
Payton said there's nothing new on contract talks with Ingram.
"I'd love to stay in New Orleans," Ingram said. "That's (the Saints') decision. If they see me in the future we'll get something done. But I have one year left. Whether it happens now or later, it'll come around."
The Saints are well positioned to handle Ingram's absence with the presence of Alvin Kamara Panthers Authentic Jerseys , the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year last season. Ingram and Kamara set an NFL record by becoming the first teammates to each gain more than 1,500 yards from scrimmage in the same season.
But after Kamara, New Orleans has little experience with Trey Edmunds, Jonathan Williams, Daniel Lasco and rookie sixth-round draft choice Boston Scott.
Former Saints running back Tom Hightower worked out for the team Tuesday, and former Chiefs and Broncos running back Jamaal Charles reportedly will visit with the team Wednesday.
"It's not the end of the world," Ingram said of his absence. "I'm going to be back. Those guys need to step up and I'm sure Alvin and the rest of the guys are going to do a great job of preparing and putting themselves in position for success. I'll be rooting on my teammates real hard."
Quarterback Drew Brees said he's "stayed in constant communication" with Ingram and knows "what he's doing to get himself ready to play."
"I know he's been training hard, working hard, preparing himself for the season," Brees said. "So it's great to have him back this week. It certainly hasn't distracted me. I don't think it's distracted anybody. We're not worried about Mark or his readiness to play when it's time."
When Ingram was suspended last month, his agent issued a statement claiming that Ingram had tested positive for a substance that is permissible with an NFL exemption, but an arbitrator ruled against Ingram.
"I fought (the suspension) hard and I don't agree with it, but I'm going to serve my suspension and I'm going to be ready when it's time," Ingram said. "Hopefully we're 4-0 when I come back, but I'll be back and I'll be ready."
Ingram, 28, made his second Pro Bowl by running for a career-high 1,124 yards and 12 touchdowns last season. He also caught 58 passes for 416 yards.
