NFL’s Hall of Fame inductees 2021: Who made the Pro Football Hall of Fame class this year?

There is much more to Super Bowl weekend than just the game. It’s also a period of looking back at the season and honoring pro football’s past.  

That nod to the past is made through the announcement of a new class of Pro Football Hall of Fame inductees. The 2021 group will be the traditional size (eight inductees total); last year, the HOF greatly expanded the list of enshrinees in conjunction with the NFL’s centennial celebration.

One member of the ’21 class — the most obvious inductee — was unofficially announced about a week early. Hall of Fame voters agreed on Peyton Manning, who will enter Canton in his first year on the ballot.
