Jackson makes Hall of Fame cut -- for now

The Pro Football Hall of Fame just announced the 25 semifinalists for the Class of 2010 and former New Orleans linebacker Rickey Jackson has made the cut.

The list will be reduced to 15 in January and the final vote will be in February.

There is one player with ties to the other three NFC South teams on the list. But I don’t think Kevin Greene, Tim Brown and Chris Doleman, who spent brief stints with Carolina, Tampa Bay and Atlanta, respectively, truly qualify as NFC South guys.

Just a reminder, you can vote on who should be in the Hall of Fame here. I should note, your vote doesn’t really count toward anything, but at least you get a chance to get your opinion out there.
