Steve Smith, Andre Johnson Lead 122 Modern-Era Nominees 4 Pro Football Hall of Fame Class
 

 
"Of those in their first year of eligibility, there's a host of all-time great playmakers leading the way for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2022 nominees.

Wide receivers Steve Smith, Anquan Boldin, Andre Johnson and kick returner Devin Hester are among those highlighting the first-year hopefuls.

Smith shined for the Panthers and Ravens, Boldin was an instant sensation for the Cardinals, Johnson was a Texans all-time great and Hester is arguably the greatest kick returner in history, having starred for the Bears to begin a memorable career.

Former Cowboys great DeMarcus Ware is another first-year nominee, as is defensive lineman Vince Wilfork, who looks to continue building on the number of Patriots synonymous with the New England dynasty.

To be considered for election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, a nominated individual must not have participated as an active player for five consecutive seasons.

A full list of the nominees is below:

The list of modern-era nominees will be cut to 25 semifinalists in November and 15 finalists in January. In addition to the 15 modern-era finalists will be senior finalist Cliff Branch, contributor finalist Art McNally and coach finalist d*ck Vermeil.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2020 is set for enshrinement in August of 2022.

Sucks how the voters have been punishing WRs for what they feel are inflated stats in a pass-happy era yet the QBs will benefit from em...

Torry Holt should've been in... Consistently put up big numbers well after Kurt Warner left...

Ridiculous. He should get in first ballot but they make receivers wait. He'll get in probably 3rd or 4th try.

Only one deserving of a first ballot is Andre Johnson. Hester is my guy, but he gotta wait his turn.

Steve Smith though

And how the heck is Fred Taylor not in the hall yet??

how you figure andre is, but steve isn't?

you can go compare their numbers via google

the huge difference is steve has returner and rushing numbers and his playoffs stats are far beyond andre's

I'd love to see Reggie Wayne and Robert Mathis get in. I don't think Bob Sanders played long enough or even enough games when he was active. He was hurt too often. He was a menace on the field though, one of 4 safeties to win DPOY in NFL history.

I'm a Florida Gators fan, but Anquan Bolden was that deal. Needs to be in, same with Steve Smith.
