After a year-long hiatus, Pro American Football Hall of Fame Hall of Fame Week is back in full force. The Steelers and Cowboys have already met in the 2021 Hall of Fame. The next step is the induction of the honorees into the Hall of Fame.
In 2021, there will be more members than ever. The 2020 Hall of Fame induction ceremony was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, the class of 2020 will be honored alongside the class of 2021.
In addition to increasing the excitement, the NFL class of 2020 introduces a whopping 20 new members. It was part of the NFL’s centennial celebration, so 15 candidates were selected for consecration along with the five who were voted on that year.
In total, 28 players will be inducted into the Professional Football Hall of Fame over the weekend. Chief among them will be Peyton Manning, and his speech is surely something NFL fans want to see.
