The New England Patriots have 19 former players in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and two more could possibly be on their way very soon. To be elected, a finalist must receive a minimum positive vote of 80 percent during the annual selection meeting.

Lynch will face a tough road to earn election this year due to some competition at his position.

The Georgia Bulldogs have two former greats on the final ballot for this year's Pro Football Hall of Fame class in Canton, Ohio.

The final members of the Class of 2019 will be during "NFL Honors", which will take place on Saturday, Feb. 2 - the night before Super Bowl LIII - at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.

The list includes five first-time candidates, including cornerback Champ Bailey, tight end Tony Gonzalez, defensive end Richard Seymour and safety Ed Reed.

Atwater was a two-time Super Bowl champion, an eight-time Pro Bowler and two-time First-Team All-Pro safety with the Denver Broncos from 1989-98.


It was announced on Thursday that Lynch was one of 15 finalists for the Hall's Class of 2019.

It is the second time Atwater has been a finalist for the Hall.

Law made five Pro Bowls and was a member of the 2000s All-Decade team.

Mawae's Jets career was intertwined with that of Curtis Martin, the Jets' Hall of Fame running back who, behind the blocks thrown by No. 68 and his fellow linemen, ran for 100 yards in 44 games and 1,000 yards in seven consecutive seasons.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Elvis Grbac (R) celebrates with Tony Gonzalez after throwing him a touchdown pass in the first half of their game against the Detroit Lions 26 September 1999 at Kansas City's Arrowhead Stadium.

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. Boselli was named to five Pro Bowls and is a HOF finalist for the third year in a row. The legendary tight end was inducted into the Chiefs' Hall of Fame on December 13.
