Waiting on the Hall of Fame vote

The election process for the 2011 class of members for the Pro Football Hall of Fame is being held right now.

The official announcement will come at 7 p.m. ET tonight, so keep an eye on the headlines section of our main NFL page right around that time. As soon as we get word, I’ll post an analysis on this blog on how the three guys with NFC South ties -- Willie Roaf, Deion Sanders and Tim Brown -- fared.

If Roaf or Sanders get in, I’ll do individual posts, reflecting on their time with the Saints and Falcons, respectively. We’ll leave Brown up to AFC West blogger Bill Williamson because Brown only spent the final year of his career in Tampa Bay and didn’t do anything of significance there.
