Former Jets and Patriots RB Curtis Martin was one of six players elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday.
Also selected for enshrinement were DT Cortez Kennedy, OT Willie Roaf, C Dermontti Dawson and DE Chris Doleman. DB Jack Butler was voted in by the senior committee. Fourth all-time with 14,101 rushing yards, Martin also tallied 3,329 receiving yards and 100 total touchdowns in a career that featured a first-team All-Pro selection at the age of 31 and five Pro Bowl nods. Amongst the most notable omissions from this year's class are WR Cris Carter, WR Tim Brown, RB Jerome Bettis and coach/executive Bill Parcells. Sat, Feb 4, 2012 06:13:00 PM

The New York Daily News' Gary Myers is "optimistic" that former Jets and Patriots RB Curtis Martin will be elected to the Hall of Fame in 2012.

This was his first year of eligibility, and with Marshall Faulk also on the ballot for the first time, Martin wasn't considered terribly likely to get in. He received more votes than Jerome Bettis, however, and with 10 1,000-yard seasons under his belt, he should find himself enshrined in the next few years.

It appeared that Curtis was coming into town to see Arthur." There has been talk that GM Rich McKay's job may be on the line this year.
