Wolf makes first HOF cut

Nov. 6, 2013
 
  • Filed Under

Former Packers general manager Ron Wolf is one of 26 finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. There are usually 25 semifinalists but one more was added this year because there was a tie in the voting off the preliminary list, the Hall said. Packers outside linebackers coach Kevin Greene also made the cut. The list, which is below, will be reduced to 15 modern-era finalists, which will be announced in early January. Two other finalists from the Hall of Fame's Seniors Committee will be added. There is no set number for enshrinement, but the Hall's current rules state that between four and seven new members will be selected each year, and no more than five modern-era nominees can be elected in any given year. The 2012 class will be announced on Feb. 4, the day before Super Bowl XLVI. Here's the complete list of semifinalists:
