First-year candidates Deion Sanders, Curtis Martin, Marshall Faulk, Jerome Bettis and Willie Roaf are among 15 modern-era finalists who will be considered for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
The Hall of Fame’s selection committee will meet on Saturday, Feb. 5, the day before the Super Bowl.
The other finalists: Tim Brown, Cris Carter, Dermontti Dawson, Richard Dent, Chris Doleman, Charles Haley, Cortez Kennedy, Andre Reed, Ed Sabol and Shannon Sharpe.
Selected in August as senior nominees are former Redskins linebacker Chris Hanburger and former Rams linebacker Les Richter.
The Hall announced 113 modern-era nominees in September. That group was cut down to 25 in November.
A minimum of four and maximum of seven new members will be selected.
