Coach Bill Parcells, running back Curtis Martin and receiver Andre Reed are among the 15 modern-era Hall of Fame finalists with AFC East ties. This is Parcells' first chance to get into Canton, while Martin and Reed have been previously eligible.
Parcells had successful stints coaching the New England Patriots, New York Jets, New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys. Martin was a running back for the Jets and Patriots. Reed spent most of his career with the Buffalo Bills from 1985-99 and later the Washington Redskins in 2000.
Voting for the 2012 Hall of Fame class will take place in Indianapolis on Saturday, Feb. 4, during Super Bowl weekend.
