Rice, Young's favorite target and the most prolific receiver in NFL history, is likely to have the next jersey retirement ceremony in San Francisco shortly after he's added to the Hall of Fame.
Former 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo, York's deposed brother-in-law and the driving force behind San Francisco's five title teams, was invited but did not attend because of medical reasons, Young said.
Young is an analyst on ESPN, a partner in a private equity firm and a busy father with three kids and a fourth on the way. He said he'd like to someday be part of a group that bought an NFL team but acknowledged that it is nearly impossible to break into that exclusive club.
