In case you’ve forgotten, the NFL is now considering adding a Pro Football Hall of Fame to its induction hall.
If it passes, that would be the third consecutive time that the league has had to consider making a Hall of Famer a Pro Bowler.
However, the league’s official decision on which players would make the Hall of Famers’ second-class list has been in limbo since 2015.
In that year, only four players made it to the second-tier list: quarterback Troy Aikman, linebacker Michael Strahan, running back Eddie George and wide receiver Marvin Harrison.
The four other players to make the list were running back Ricky Williams, defensive tackle LaMarr Woodley and safety John Lynch.
The NFL’s official rulebook, however, still says that players who made the Hall will be ineligible to make Pro Bowls.
So the league is still waiting on a vote from the owners, who will vote on the list on Thursday.
The owners are expected to make their final decisions by Tuesday, according to a source familiar with the process.
That means it will be months before any Pro Bowl selections are made.
For now, the players are looking for a spot on the Hall, which would be one of the few times that the NFL could choose the Pro Bowlers for the second year in a row.
They are also looking to get a third straight Pro Bowl nod, after the team that finishes first will get a chance to add one.
But the league will have to consider a lot of factors before making the decision, including the longevity of Hall of fames, and the players’ ability to contribute to the league as Hall of famers.
The Hall of Champions, who are also named after the NFL’s first two Super Bowl champions, are also the only two teams that can make a Pro Bowl.
For the first time, there will be four Pro Bowl-caliber players in the Hall.
They include Aikmen, George, Williams and Woodley, along with Lynch.
All four of those players are in their early 30s, but Aikmans career is also in its final years.
Harrison, who retired in 2010, is entering his age-40 season.
He is also a Hall-of-Famer.
After the owners vote on who should make the Pro Bounties, they will then have to decide whether to include the Hall-honorable mention candidates in the voting, or if they will continue to count Hall of champions, including those who are still playing in the league.
