Favre, Owens, Faneca Among Hall of Fame Finalists
CANTON, Ohio (AP) — Brett Favre, Terrell Owens and Alan Faneca, all first-year eligibles, have made the list of 15 finalists for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
The class of 2016 will be decided on Feb. 6, the day before the Super Bowl, with inductions scheduled for August.
Also making the cut to 15 are Morten Andersen, Steve Atwater, Don Coryell, Terrell Davis, Tony Dungy, Kevin Greene, Marvin Harrison, Joe Jacoby, Edgerrin James, John Lynch, Orlando Pace and Kurt Warner.
Two senior finalists — players whose careers ended more than 25 years ago — were announced last August: Ken Stabler and Dick Stanfel.
A contributor finalist announced in September was Edward DeBartolo Jr., owner of the San Francisco 49ers from 1977-2000.
To be elected, a finalist must receive a minimum of 80 percent of the votes cast by the selection panel.
