The class of 2016 also includes contributor Ed DeBartolo Jr. and senior selection Dick Stanfel.
The AP says announcement was made Saturday. An appropriate timing; the day before the Denver Broncos face the Carolina Panthers in the Super Bowl, pro football's greatest competition.

Five nominees were eliminated in the final vote: players Terrell Davis, Joe Jacoby, John Lynch and Kurt Warner, and coach Don Coryell.
Earlier Saturday, the selection committee reduced the list of 15 modern-day finalists by cutting Terrell Owens, Edgerrin James, Steve Atwater, Alan Faneca and Morten Anderson.
