It's the beginning of what will be an unforgettable weekend for the Denver Broncos legendary running back Terrell Davis, who will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday.

During the Hall of Fame preseason game between the Dallas Cowboys and Arizona Cardinals on Thursday night Davis was asked if his addition to the Hall of Fame would set a precedent for a focus on quality of play over quantity of seasons in the NFL. 

He responded saying:

"Well I hope so. I mean, for me it was Gale Sayers, he was the one who set the precedent so they had something to look at. I certainly hope so. I mean Kurt Warner was kind of short for a quarterback. Kenny Easley, you know his career was pretty short, so hopefully this opens up the gates for everybody else."

Davis is the Denver Broncos all-time leading rusher, with 7,607 rushing yards. He also amassed 60 rushing touchdowns, 1,280 receiving yards and 5 receiving touchdowns across his eight-season career between 1995 and 2002. 

He was also a huge part of the Broncos winning Super Bowl XXXII, where he was named MVP, and Super Bowl XXXIII. Davis was also voted the NFL's MVP in 1998, along with two Offensive Player of the Year wins in 1996 and 1998, the same years he led the league in rushing touchdowns.
