Raiders wide receiver Tim Brown enters Hall of Fame

CANTON, Ohio (AP) Tim Brown's last catch was a winner.

The longtime Raiders wide receiver entered the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday night, more than a decade after the end of a career that saw him catch 1,094 passes and score 105 touchdowns.

Brown says he was worried his time would never come after getting passed over several times. He told his wife if he didn't get in this year he may have to wait until he became eligible for the veteran's committee.

The nine-time Pro Bowler was presented for induction by his brother Donald Kelly.
