The selection meeting - which will determine the four to eight inductees - will be on February 2, the day before the Super Bowl, in Atlanta.

He went on to haul in 82 receptions for 1,099 yards and seven touchdowns in his two seasons in red and gold. Flores coached for the Raiders from 1979-87, where he won two Super Bowls, and for the Seahawks from 1992-94. While he also spent time at the start of his 16-year career with Seattle and at the finish with Tennessee, he starred in the middle eight of his 16 pro seasons as the pivot man on the Jets' offensive line.

The 15 finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2019 were announced on Thursday night, with the former stars getting one step closer to being enshrined in Canton.

Seymour and Flores were eligible before but are finalists for the first time. Former Dallas Cowboys vice president Gil Brandt and current Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen were both selected as contributors finalists.

Prior to joining the Falcons, Gonzalez earned the reputation as one of the best tight ends in league history while playing for the Kansas City Chiefs, who drafted him with the 13th-overall pick in the 1997 NFL Draft. He got them to a 13-3 team where they lost in the AFC Championship Game to the Steelers and ended up finishing his career there in the Ring of Honor.

He's the greatest running back in Colts history, and leads the franchise in career rushing yards (9,226), rushing touchdowns (64), rushing yards per game average (96.1), rushing yards in a single season (1,709 in 2000) and most seasons with 1,000 rushing yards (five). Coryell, who coached the high-powered offenses of the Cardinals and Chargers in the 1970s and '80s, is a five-time finalist.

Lynch, a standout safety for Tampa Bay and Denver, becomes a finalist for the sixth straight year.
