The NFL is announcing its Hall of Fame Class of 2017 and we will be updating this post throughout the evening as the class is announced. The Hall of Fame class will be announced at the Honors show, which begins at 8 p.m. ET Saturday and will be televised on FOX.
UPDATE 7:28 PM EST:
BREAKING: LaDainian Tomlinson, Terrell Davis, Kurt Warner, Morten Andersen & Jason Taylor make up 2017 class of the Pro FB Hall of Fame. pic.twitter.com/Sp8Rq3Yann— Andrew Luria (@AndrewLuria) February 5, 2017
Your NFL Hall of Fame Class of 2017 is RB LaDainian Tomlinson, RB Terrell Davis, QB Kurt Warner, K Morten Andersen, and EDGE Jason Taylor. WR Terrell Owens is snubbed, as are all of the offensive linemen and New England Patriots CB Ty Law.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and Seahawks S Kenny Easley made the Hall of Fame as the contributor and senior selections.
The fact that a kicker made it over Terrell Owens is incredible, and head-shaking.
What are your thoughts on the class?
RB Terrell Davis
Some surprises in new HoF class. A pleasant one for Broncos: Terrell Davis is a Hall of Famer, per source w/knowledge of HoF class. #9sports— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) February 5, 2017

The NBC-TV affiliate in DC reports Jason Taylor has been voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame— Barry Jackson (@flasportsbuzz) February 4, 2017
RB LaDainian Tomlinson
A very reliable source has told me that LaDainian Tomlinson and Terrell Davis both made it into the Hall of Fame! #SanDiego— Troy Hirsch (@troyhirschfox5) February 4, 2017

WR Terrell Owens
Unfortunately I DID NOT MAKE IT again this year. Thanks to ALL my fans & supporters. #FlawedProcess— Terrell Owens (@terrellowens) February 4, 2017
OG Alan Faneca, OT Joe Jacoby, C Kevin Mawae
Three offensive linemen (Alan Faneca, Joe Jacoby, Kevin Mawae) were HOF finalists. All three were voted down.— Michael David Smith (@MichaelDavSmith) February 5, 2017
S Brian Dawkins, S John Lynch
Brian Dawkins and John Lynch were voted down by the Hall of Fame Selection Committee. Still a logjam at the safety position.— Michael David Smith (@MichaelDavSmith) February 5, 2017
