Other players eligible for the first time are Keyshawn Johnson, Tiki Barber, Drew Bledsoe, Stephen Davis, Rod Smith, Will Shields, Troy Vincent and Mike Vanderjagt.

Retired coaches Bill Cowher, Bill Parcells and Marty Schottenheimer are also eligible.

Altogether, 103 men are eligible. The selection committee will choose 25 semifinalists in November. That number will be reduced by a mail ballot to 15, which will be revealed in January.
