It has been known that Oakland Raiders legend Tim Brown’s long overdue induction to the Hall of Fame is coming this summer in Canton for some time now, but when it came to when the team would celebrate the achievement of one of their greatest modern era players nobody knew the exact timeframe for when the franchise would be holding their ceremony for Brown. That is until now as recently Brown slipped the week in which Brown will have his Hall of Fame moment in front of the Black Hole at the Coliseum.

Talking to Silver and Black Pride about the Hall of Fame process, Brown confirmed the home game that he will be honored at. Adding that thanks to Kay Jewelers the rest of the Raiders Hall of Fame players from years past will also be getting a new Hall of Fame ring in addition to their originals during the event.

The Raiders will be holding the event Week 8 according to Brown. Oakland’s midseason game against the New York Jets set to be the day in which team legends are celebrated along with Brown, who fans campaigned for years to be enshrined in the Hall of Fame based on his efforts in the 90s and the 00s with the team as one of their best ever wideouts. Now in early November, fans will get to share a special moment with Brown one last time as he will receive his HOF ring.

“I’ll be getting my ring on November 1st,” Brown said to Silver and Black Pride’s Levi Damien. “Not quick enough, but that’s the days that the Raiders have said, so I’ll be looking forward to that. Not only will I be getting my ring, but the other Hall of Famers for the Raiders will be getting their rings, so we’re all excited about that. Should be a great, great day and looking forward to Kay Jewelers and the Hall of Fame with the Ring of Excellence. It should be an incredible day.”

Fans like to circle their calendars for the special home dates each season, and it appears now that a rather mediocre matchup between the Raiders and the Jets in the middle of the season will now be one of those games. The chance to see Brown receive his Hall of Fame ring a special one as the Black Hole will surely honor one of their most beloved greats since the team returned to Oakland. A key veteran on the Raiders AFC Championship team back in 2002, it is finally time for Brown to be given his more than deserved moment in being celebrated as a Hall of Famer in front of the hometown fans at the Coliseum.
