Running Back Terrell Davis, Linebacker Karl Mecklenburg, Safety Steve Atwater & Safety John Lynch are the Denver Broncos selected to move into the HOF semifinal round.
Other former Broncos under consideration, but not selected were: Wide Receiver Rod Smith, Center Tom Nalen, Safety Dennis Smith and former head coaches Dan Reeves & Lou Saban.
The Class of 2014 will again be trimmed later this season down to 15 modern-era finalists plus two Seniors Committee nominees (Punter Ray Guy (1973-1986 Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders) and Defensive End Claude Humphrey (1968-1978 Atlanta Falcons, 1979-1981 Philadelphia Eagles). The final class will be announced on Saturday, Feb. 1 - the day before Super Bowl XLVIII.
Even though there is no set number for any class of enshrinees, the selection process by-laws provide that between four and seven new members will be selected each year.
Lets hope a few more of our legends make it this year.
