Former Steelers running back Jerome Bettis, linebacker Kevin Greene, kicker Gary Anderson and coaches Bill Cowher and Buddy Parker are among the 126 nominees for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2014. The list includes 89 players, 16 coaches and 21 contributors.
This is not the first go around for any of them, and Bettis and Greene have been finalists in the past.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame Selection Committee will narrow the list to 25 semifinalists in late November. From there the list is whittled down to 15 finalists in early January.
The Class of 2014 will be announced in New York City on Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014 as a part of Super Bowl XLVIII weekend.
Former Steelers defensive back and defensive coordinator Tony Dungy is a first-time nominee this year for his career as a head coach with the Indianapolis Colts and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
