Walter Jones' retirement from the NFL, expected to be announced Thursday, could create NFC West drama when Hall of Fame voters get together in five years.

Jones could have company among elite former NFC West players eligible for the first time.

Former Rams tackle Orlando Pace, cut by the Bears, would be eligible at the same time if another team does not sign him. Former Rams and Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner has already announced his retirement. Former Rams and 49ers receiver Isaac Bruce appears headed for retirement.
