TEMPE, Ariz. -- And then there were 15.
The class of 2014 inductees will be voted on Feb. 1, the day before Super Bowl, in New York City.
Williams has been a finalist the past two seasons.
Former Cardinals coach Don Coryell was a finalist in 2010 but was not elected. Former Cards running back Emmitt Smith, best known for his time with the Dallas Cowboys, was a finalist for the first time in 2010 and voted in that year. And former Cardinals cornerback Roger Wehrli was enshrined in 2007 after being a finalist for the first time.
Williams’ fellow modern-day finalists are K Morten Andersen, RB Jerome Bettis, LB Derrick Brooks, WR Tim Brown, owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr., coach Tony Dungy, LB/DE Kevin Greene, DE/LB Charles Haley, WR Marvin Harrison, T Walter Jones, S John Lynch, WR Andre Reed, G Will Shields and DE Michael Strahan.
The two senior nominees are P Ray Guy and DE Claude Humphrey.
Williams would be the Cardinals’ 12th Hall of Famer and the first since Wehrli was inducted in 2007.
