The Steelers are well represented among the Modern Era nominees for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2022.
After having a total of five members of the organization enshrined over the summer as members of the Class of 2020 and Class of 2021, the Steelers have five players who are among the initial list of nominees for the Class of 2022.
Included in the group of nominees are receiver Hines Ward, who has advanced as a semifinalist in the past, tight end Heath Miller, defensive lineman Casey Hampton, linebacker Hardy Nickerson Sr. and kicker Gary Anderson.
The complete list of Modern Era nominees includes a total of 122 individuals. The Modern Era nominees will be trimmed to 25 semifinalists in November and to 15 finalists in January.
The Hall of Fame Selection Committee will meet early in 2022 to determine the class, and the 2022 Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony will be held next August in Canton, Ohio.
