There will be no Denver Broncos donning the yellow jacket in Canton this year. The announcement of the 2012 Hall-of-Fame finalists was just released and Denver will have no representation in this years class. Over the last couple years the Broncos have had a good run, getting Floyd Little and Shannon Sharpe inducted, but this year there's no such luck.

Steve Atwater, Karl Mecklenburg and Terrell Davis had made the list of Semi-Finalists on November 22nd, but were conspicuously absent this morning when the list was whittled down to 17 finalists.

Jump with me to see who the 17 finalists are.
