It has been 10 years since Pat Tillman was killed in Afghanistan. He gave up a seven-figure contract in the NFL to go fight for his country. CBSSports.com national columnist Gregg Doyel (@GreggDoyelCBS) joined Zinno on “Last Call” to discuss it.
Doyel says that Tillman belongs there simply because he is a legend and legends belong in the Hall of Fame. People tried to point out others that could be in the Hall of Fame, in other sports. But the comparison doesn’t hold up because not every circumstance is equal.
