About The NFL Hall Of Fame
Each year, the NFL Hall of Fame Selection Committee will process several rounds of contending players, coaches, and contributors for induction consideration. In February, the Committee meets and narrows the list down to five potential Hall of Famers and then places them on a ballot for another round of yes or no votes where those that receive over 80% approval will become inducted.
