The Pro Football Hall of Fame unveiled its 25 modern-era semifinalists for the Class of 2019 on Tuesday.
The list includes three first-time candidates: cornerback Champ Bailey, tight end Tony Gonzalez and safety Ed Reed. The semifinalist group also includes three coaches, 13 defensive players and nine offensive players.
Two others -- coach Tom Flores and linebacker Zach Thomas -- although previously eligible for the Hall of Fame, are semifinalists for the first time. All other individuals on the 2019 list have been a semifinalist in previous years.
The following is the list of 2019 Modern-Era semifinalists, including their positions, years and teams. Also listed are the number of times and years the candidate has been named a semifinalist since this reduction vote was added to the Selection Committee Bylaws in 2004.
