Finalists for Class of 2013
Four first-year eligible nominees – Larry Allen, Jonathan Ogden, Warren Sapp, and Michael Strahan – are among the 15 modern-era finalists who will be considered for election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame when the Hall’s Selection Committee meets in New Orleans, La. on Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013.
Terrell Davis, Steve Atwater, Karl Mecklenburg, and John Lynch didn't make the cut. This was Lynch's first year of eligibility; Davis has been a semifinalist for six straight years but never went beyond that, while Mecklenburg and Atwater's hall bids have been cut short here for the second year in a row.
