Retired Packers S LeRoy Butler misses cut for Hall of Fame finalists

Former Pittsburgh Steelers guard Alan Faneca is among the 15 modern-era finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame's class of 2019.

The three are among 15 modern-era finalists for this year's class, which also includes cornerback Ty Law, who played his final National Football League season with the Broncos. Cornerback Champ Bailey and defensive end Richard Seymour were both named finalists for the 2019 class. The contributor finalists are Pat Bowlen (Denver Broncos owner) and Gil Brandt (Dallas Cowboys vice president of player personnel).

A maximum of eight new members can be elected, five from the modern-era group.

The Hall of Fame class of 2019 will officially be enshrined on August 3 in Canton, Ohio.

"This is the team that drafted me, so this is a special place", Hutchinson, a first-round pick by the Seahawks in 2001, said after raising the 12 Flag for Seattle's playoff game against Detroit.

Lynch will find out if he's made the cut on the eve of Super Bowl LIII just prior to NFL Honors. He finished his career in 1999 after his lone season with the New York Jets.

Lynch, a standout safety for Tampa Bay and Denver, becomes a finalist for the sixth straight year.

Hopefully, we will get to see Zach Thomas in the Pro Football Hall of Fame before then.

Gonzalez, a 14-time Pro Bowl player and six-time All-Pro tight end with the Chiefs and Falcons, retired as the NFL's second all-time leader in receptions with 1,325.

He's the greatest running back in Colts history, and leads the franchise in career rushing yards (9,226), rushing touchdowns (64), rushing yards per game average (96.1), rushing yards in a single season (1,709 in 2000) and most seasons with 1,000 rushing yards (five).
