Among the rumours and apparent leaks to the media about who was set to be enshrined in to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, we now know for definite who is set for initiation into the hall in Canton, Ohio.
Seattle Seahawks tackle Walter Jones and Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Derrick Brooks were the players to get in at their first time of asking on the ballot.
The 2014 class was completed with the additions of New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan - who controversially missed out last year - Arizona Cardinals and St. Louis Rams cornerback Aeneas Williams and Buffalo Bills wide receiver Andre Reed.
The two seniors committee candidates, Oakland Raiders punter Ray Guy and Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Claude Humphrey, were also inducted.
When the list of candidates was cut down to ten, linebacker Kevin Greene, defensive end Charles Haley, running back Jerome Bettis, guard Will Shields and wide receiver Marvin Harrison were the final players to be cut.
All of these former greats will get another chance to become a Hall of Famer next year and earn their rings. A player has 15 years on the ballot in which they can be honoured.
