NFL Hall of Fame to make changes to selection process

Sunday September 27th, 2015

The Pro Football Hall of Fame will be announcing a change to its selection process that will possibly allow current Hall of Famers to play a role, reports Pro Football Talk. 

According to Pro Football Hall of Fame executive vice president Joe Horrigan, the changes to the procedure could be in place as soon as this year.

Hall of Famers are currently barred from being involved in the annual selection process. The 46-member selection committee is made up of a media member representing each team, a member chosen by the Pro Football Writers of America and 13 at-large delegates.
