Former Raiders WR Tim Brown is among the 15 modern-era finalists who will be considered for election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame when the Hall’s Selection Committee meets in New York City on Saturday, Feb. 1, 2014.

Joining the first-year eligibles, are 10 other modern-era players and a contributor. The 15 modern-era finalists, along with the two senior nominees announced in August 2013 (former Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders punter, Ray Guy and Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Claude Humphrey) will be the only candidates considered for Hall of Fame election when the 46-member Selection Committee meets.

Although they have been nominees in previous years, this is the first time that Morten Andersen and John Lynch have been finalists.

The 15 modern-era finalists were determined by a vote of the Hall’s Selection Committee from a list of 126 nominees that earlier was reduced to a list of 25 semifinalists, during the multi-step, year-long selection process. Guy and Humphrey were selected as senior candidates by the Hall of Fame’s Seniors Committee. The Seniors Committee reviews the qualifications of those players whose careers ended more than 25 years ago.

To be elected a finalist must receive a minimum positive vote of 80 percent.

David Baker, the recently named president/executive director of the Hall of Fame will oversee his first meeting of the Hall of Fame Selection Committee on Saturday, February 1, 2014, in New York City when the committee meets to elect the Class of 2014. For the first time, the Hall of Fame’s newest class of enshrinees will be introduced during the “3rd Annual NFL Honors” show, a two-hour primetime awards show airing nationally that night at 8 PM ET/PT on FOX.

At the 2014 selection meeting, the selectors will thoroughly discuss the careers of each finalist. Although there is no set number for any class of enshrinees, the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s current ground rules stipulate that between four and seven new members will be selected each year. No more than five modern-era nominees can be elected in a given year and thus a class of six or seven can only be achieved if one or both senior nominees (Ray Guy and/or Claude Humphrey) are elected. Representatives of the accounting firm Deloitte & Touche will tabulate all votes during the meeting.
