McClain was on hand for former Oilers defensive tackle Curley Culp’s induction this past weekend in Canton, Ohio.
“The one guy that I feel fully deserves to be in is Bud Adams,” McClain said. “A lot of people today don’t realize Bud’s contributions, but you cannot write the history of the National Football League without Bud.”
Adams, one of the original founders and driving force behind the start of the American Football League, has been on the Hall of Fame’s preliminary list for several years, but has yet to advance through the process.
McClain, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Selection Committee, said that needs to change and emphatically stated a strong case for the long-time NFL team owner that is worth checking out in this video.
