Tony Gonzalez is one step closer to landing in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The five finalists must receive 80 percent of the votes to be elected to the Hall of Fame.

The inventor of the Lambeau Leap, LeRoy Butler, will have to wait for another chance at being named into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, as he was not one of the fifteen finalists.

The 2019 Pro Football Hall of Fame class will be announced on February 2, the day before Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta. He was named to four Pro Bowls and one All-Pro team while playing in Atlanta.

Players are eligible to be a modern-era finalist for 20 years before they become a senior finalist.

Isaac Bruce, Edgerrin James, Steve Atwater, Ty Law, John Lynch, Tony Boselli, Kevin Mawae, Alan Faneca, Steve Hutchinson and Richard Seymour round out the list.

Floyd Mayweather leaves Japanese kickboxer in tears in fight farce
As you can see, the five-division world champion apparently has no inclinations to return to the ring for a legitimate bout. After the smoke cleared, it became a three-round boxing match, falling fully in Mayweather's wheelhouse.

The Class of 2019 will be officially enshrined into the Hall of Fame during the spectacular Enshrinement Ceremony held inside Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium at Johnson Controls Hall of Fame Village in Canton on Saturday, Aug. 3. He was honored as a member of the 2000's all-decade team, a bullet point that historically has carried significant weight with hall of fame voters.

Selected in the fifth round of the 1996 NFL Draft by Miami, he earned the starting middle linebacker job during training camp of his rookie year. He finished his career in 1999 after his lone season with the New York Jets.

Lynch played free safety for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 1993 until 2003 and then for the Denver Broncos from 2004 until 2007.

He is one of only three players in National Football League history to register at least 100 tackles in their first ten games of their career. This year's senior finalist is safety Johnny Robinson. The legendary tight end was inducted into the Chiefs' Hall of Fame on December 13.
