Good morning, Broncos Country!

Randy Gradishar, Dan Reeves and Mike Shanahan are one step closer to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

All three former members of the Denver Broncos advanced to the final 12 of their respective categories, Gradishar in the Seniors and Reeves and Shanahan in the Contributors.

The Coach/Contributor Committee will choose one of the remaining 12 for final consideration for the Class of 2024 on Aug. 15. The Seniors Committee will select three of the remaining 12 for final consideration on Aug. 22.

As Gradishar told the Denver Gazette: “It’s a nice honor to still be remembered and to be in this last 12. I’m just glad my name is still out there and that I still have a chance. It’s been 30-some years that I’ve been through this process. Maybe this could be the year.”

One would think Gradishar and Shanahan have a great shot. But since Gradishar has been here so many times, you never know. That’s especially true for Gradishar since the Seniors Committee will choose three to advance. As for Shanahan, he’s one of the best coaches in the history of the NFL who is still shaping the league with his revolutionary offense.

Hopefully, this is the year that one of them gets the nod.
