Buffalo Bills have 11 former players as nominees for 2024 Pro Football Hall of Fame

On Tuesday, the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced the players eligible for the upcoming Hall of Fame class, which will be inducted next August. There were 173 players in the modern-era nominees, including 11 Buffalo Bills.

The 11 former Buffalo Bills who could potentially make the Hall of Fame included:

  • Doug Flutie (QB)
  • Larry Centers (FB)
  • Ruben Brown (OG)
  • Ted Washington (DT)
  • Pat Williams (DT)
  • Cornelius Bennet (OLB)
  • Takeo Spikes (LB)
  • London Fletcher (LB)
  • Troy Vincent (CB)
  • Antoine Winfield (DB)
  • Brian Moorman (P)

There are certainly a number of notable players on this list but a majority played during the drought era for the Bills. There were players like London Fletcher, Takeo Spikes, Antoine Winfield, and Brian Moorman who were great players but were often overlooked as the franchise as a whole struggled.

This list of players will be cut down to 25 semifinalists in November and it would be surprising if any former Buffalo Bills make it to the next round. However, London Fletcher may have the best chance as he had 14 straight 100+ total tackle seasons, led the league once in the category, and made the Pro Bowl four straight seasons.
