Peyton Manning a Hall of Fame semifinalists

Peyton Manning a Hall of Fame semifinalists”

Former Green Bay Packers and Oakland Raiders DB Charles Woodson is one of four first-year eligible players named to this year's semi-finalist list for Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinement.

Alan Faneca, a finalist the last five years, and Hines Ward, a semifinalist for the fifth time, are semifinalists for the Class of 2021.

Johnson is among 25 semifinalists that will be whittled down in February by the Hall of Fame selection committee. The Pro Football Hall of Fame admits four to eight new Hall of Famers each year.

The other semifinalists are Ronde Barber, Tony Boselli, LeRoy Butler, Torry Holt, John Lynch, Clay Matthews, Sam Mills, Richard Seymour, Steve Tasker, Fred Taylor, Zach Thomas, Reggie Wayne, Patrick Willis, Darren Woodson and Bryant Young. In 2009, arguably his finest season as a pro, he was named NFL Defensive Player of the Year by The Associated Press and earned All-Pro and Pro Bowl honors. 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.

A second-round pick out of Florida State in 1992, Butler is now the only offensive or defensive player from the 1990s All-Decade Team yet to be enshrined. He made four All-Pro Teams.

Woodson was a defensive standout during his 18-year National Football League career. Vikings, Bears, and Chiefs DE Jared Allen and Lions WR Calvin "Megatron" Johnson are also up for consideration.

A seven-time Pro Bowl selection, Holt tallied 920 career receptions for 13,382 yards and 74 touchdowns in 11 seasons - 10 with the Rams and one with the Jaguars - including eight-straight seasons of at least 80 catches and 1,000 receiving yards while with the Rams.
