Darren Sharper Still Eligible for Hall of Fame; Despite Rape Conviction

Despite the fact he'll be locked up for the next 9 years, convicted rapist Darren Sharper is still eligible to be elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame -- and based on his numbers alone, there's a real possibility it could happen. TMZ Sports spoke with Joe Horrigan -- Executive V.P. of the Selection Process for the Pro Football HOF -- who tells us there's nothing in the bylaws preventing a convicted criminal from being enshrined in Canton. Horrigan says as long as the player has been out of the league for 5 years and has made at least 1 All-Pro team ... this guy's eligible. And who said Football wasn't a brutal pastime?
