While speaking to the crowded McKenzie Arena at his alma mater, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Owens wanted to address a "flawed" voting system. Like most of us, Owens also admired Bryant's unmatched work ethic and undying devotion to his craft.

"I will leave a legacy that will leave an imprint on this world forever, " he said, via ESPN.

Owens cleared up rumors that he skipped his ceremony in Canton because of voting results, stating that this clearly wasn't the case.

But since the team's last championship, there have been a few players that stand out as Hall of Fame caliber players.

"For her to understand what this jacket means to me ... 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.

Former wide receiver Terrell Owens delivers his NFL Pro Football Hall of Fame speech on Saturday, Aug. 4, 2018, in Chattanooga, Tenn.

Below are some of the special moments from Moss' portion of the enshrinement ceremony in Canton, Ohio.

Owens' speech at his alma mater reiterated why he chose to skip the Hall of Fame festivities.

Toward the end of his speech, Moss recognized all of the people that he saw on a daily basis throughout his 14-year National Football League career.

"I love everything about football: the friendships, the coaches, the teachers, the challenges, the opportunity to excel. I want to thank you for opening the door and not being scared to reach out", Moss said. As the premier safety of his time and arguably the best at his position to ever take to the field, he's widely regarded as a shoo-in to be a member of the Hall's next class.

Near the end of his speech, Owens got the crowd involved.

Urlacher followed by mentioning several former teammates. "It speaks volumes to the type of person that he is, even though other people may think other of him".
