  • Tony Gonzalez is among 15 finalists for the 2019 Pro Football Hall of Fame the league announced on Thursday. More

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - Just a year after the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Class of 2018 included three enshrinees who had been eligible for the first time, the Class of '19 could turn the trick again. This is the sixth time that Lynch has been named a finalist.

The Senior Finalist is S Johnny Robinson, and the two Contributor Finalists are former Cowboys vice president of player personnel Gil Brandt and Broncos owner Pat Bowlen. Between four and eight new members will be selected. The inductions will be made on August 3 in Canton.

Bailey, who never won a Super Bowl, is still looked at amongst the all-time greats at the cornerback position. He was honored as a member of the 2000's all-decade team, a bullet point that historically has carried significant weight with hall of fame voters.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Elvis Grbac (R) celebrates with Tony Gonzalez after throwing him a touchdown pass in the first half of their game against the Detroit Lions 26 September 1999 at Kansas City's Arrowhead Stadium. Considered one of the game's best cover cornerbacks, he had a career-high 10 interceptions in 2006. He holds the career receptions record for tight ends with 1,325, second only overall to Jerry Rice, and gained more than 15,127 yards while scoring 111 touchdowns.

James played 11 seasons in the National Football League and his first seven with the Colts, where he began his career as one of the best statistical running backs of all time.

Ravens' former safety Ed Reed has made that list. He's one of two players to lead the NFL in interceptions three times (2-4, 2008, 2010) and was the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2004.

Among this year's modern era finalists, Lynch and Coryell have been finalists the most often at six and five times, respectively.
