Fletcher, Bailey named to initial 2019 Hall of Fame nominees list

He was one of four players on the list that are first-year eligible, along with Bailey, safety Ed Reed, and tight end Tony Gonzalez.

It's hard to look at the 102 candidates for the Pro Football Hall Of Fame class of 2019 announced Thurday and not see a former member of the Washington Redskins.

In addition to the 11 player nominees and one coach nominee, the Broncos also have a contributor finalist: owner Pat Bowlen. To this day, Mitchell holds National Football League records for most total return yards, most all-purpose yards in a single decade, combined return yards in the postseason, and many other return records.


Among those nominated, several belong to the list of the 80 Greatest Redskins, including wide receiver Gary Clark, running back Earnest Byner, kick and punt returner Brian Mitchell, offensive tackle Chris Samuels, running back Clinton Portis and defensive coordinator/head coach Richie Petitbon. The other three aforementioned nominees have yet to make it past the initial cut. Among those coaches are Super Bowl champions Bill Cowher, Tom Flores, Mike Holmgren, Jimmy Johnson and Dick Vermeil.

The nominees will be reduced to 25 in November and 15 in January.

The Selection Committee will meet on Saturday, Feb. 2, 2019 in Atlanta, Ga.to elect the Class of 2019. Dolphin fans will recognize a few former fan favorites on the list. Inductions will be in early August in Canton, Ohio.
