Joining him will be two more first-time nominees, Champ Bailey and Ed Reed, along with another defensive back, Ty Law, and center Kevin Mawae; Law and Mawae were both in their third year as finalists.

The Minnesota Vikings have an awesome number of players who have been a part of their organization who have been enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame and that list will continue to grow as years go on.

Law's career spanned 15 seasons, with the New England Patriots, New York Jets, Chiefs and Broncos.

Maroon 5 is headlining the Pepsi Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show, which was a polarizing choice among fans for multiple reasons. We thank the universe for this historic opportunity to play on the world's biggest stage. "Worst halftime show ever".

Gonzalez spent 12 years with the Kansas City Chiefs and his final five seasons with the Atlanta Falcons.

He played a total of 11 seasons in the league with his first seven being with the Colts after he was selected with the No. 4 overall pick in the 1999 NFL Draft.

The most memorable and, arguably, the biggest play of his career came in Super Bowl XXXVI when he intercepted a Kurt Warner pass and took it 47 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter. "Those three players combined for 35 Pro Bowl selections as well as 14 first-team All-Pro nods". Reed's go-to move was the lateral on the return, with everyone expecting that any time a ball was intercepted it would start going the other way for a potential score. Bailey played ten seasons in Denver and five with the Washington Redskins eventually retiring as a Bronco in 2015.

Reed, a nine-time Pro Bowl selection, teamed with Hall of Fame linebacker Ray Lewis on some of Baltimore's stout defenses.

Reed was one of four defensive backs who will be inducted on August 3 in Canton, Ohio. Eight years later, Bailey made his only Super Bowl. Denver has won three Super Bowls under his leadership. He blocked for Hall of Fame running back Curtis Martin in all of his seven 1,000-yard seasons with the Jets. He did it well, too, as the 2000s All-Decade Team member notched 54 career interceptions.
