Terrell Davis on CTE Symptoms: 'I Can't Lie, We're All Scared'

Terrell Davis was on the Hall of Fame ballot for nine years before making it in 2017

Terrell Davis was on the Hall of Fame ballot for nine years before making it in 2017

Davis had a remarkable career and he's a worthy member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

TD will officially be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Saturday night.

"Can you imagine that?"

But when Davis was asked about Pat Bowlen, he had plenty to say. A big hit on special teams in that game was the jumping-off point for Davis, and former Broncos coach Gary Kubiak used the tackle to illustrate for the team's rookies how careers can begin. "Am I here? Thank God it didn't happen like that".

Davis spoke emotionally about his wife, Tamiko, and three children, and told the cheering crowd how he told Tamiko on the couple's first date that he would marry her. Yeah, I would. Now, 10 years ago I may have said something different.

Davis becomes the fifth member of the Denver Broncos to be enshrined.

"I can't lie, we're all scared", Davis said, according to The Denver Post.

Davis said he would wear the Hall's signature gold jacket "all the time" after often wondering if he would ever get the call from Canton. Davis earned the starter's job at running back for the '95 season opener, a job he kept for 14 games.

Davis is one of two backs in league history - Jim Brown is the other - to average more than 100 yards rushing per game in the regular season and postseason combined. With the Broncos winning back-to-back Super Bowl titles, he set an National Football League playoff record with seven consecutive 100-yard rushing performances in 1997-98.

With Hearst gone to the NFL, Davis enjoyed his best year as a collegian in 1993, leading the Bulldogs in rushing with 824 yards and five TDs, highlighted by a 177-yard effort against Arkansas.
