Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2021 revealed at ‘NFL Honors’

On the night before Super Bowl LV, which features one sure-fire Hall of Fame QB and another signal-caller 18 years his junior on pace for a place in Canton, the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2021 was revealed at NFL Honors.

The rolling announcement of inductees took place over a two-hour window. Below are the names of the Class of 2021:

Peyton Manning: When the Hall of Fame Selection Committee met in January to nominate this year’s inductees, Colts beat writer Mike Chappell spent no more than 13 seconds pleading Manning’s case. And why not? What more do you say about the quarterback who’s accomplished everything?

Woj Was Giddy To Break The James Harden Trade On ESPN’s ‘NFL Live’

Travis Kelce is the best tight end in football. Just ask any NFL player.

In college, Brate had chosen Rob Gronkowski, who became his teammate this past offseason, for that kind of close review. Then Gronkowski’s body started to betray him, and his skills diminished.

“Once I got into the NFL, he was no longer my favorite tight end,” Brate said this week. “It was Travis Kelce.”

As he prepares for his second Super Bowl after catching a touchdown in last year’s game, Kelce occupies a rarefied place in the NFL’s ecosystem. He has become the engine of the Chiefs’ relentless offense, both bulldozer and security blanket for Patrick Mahomes. In the AFC championship game, he caught a championship-game record 13 passes, two for touchdowns. The only thing in Kansas City more certain to satisfy than burnt ends at Q39 is Kelce on third down.
