The Pro Football Hall of Fame has announced 130 modern-era nominees for its 2021 class. Several former members of the Kansas City Chiefs have been nominated, including one first-year nominee.
Now that we have the nominees, the next step in the process is to whittle down these 130 players to 25 semifinalists in November. Then the selection committee will convene again and whittle it down to 15 finalists in January. On Saturday, Feb. 6, 2021 in Tampa, Fla., the selection committee will elect the Class of 2021, choosing anywhere from four to eight players for enshrinement. Here’s how that process will work:
“Eighteen Finalists will be presented to the full 48-member Pro Football Hall of Fame Selection Committee during its annual meeting on “Selection Saturday,” the day before Super Bowl LV. The Finalists will consist of 15 Modern-Era Finalists and the recently named Senior Finalist, Drew Pearson; Contributor Finalist, Bill Nunn; and Coach Finalist, Tom Flores.”
