The Pro Football Hall of Fame Seniors Committee named two candidates for enshrinement to the class of 2012, and former Packers offensive lineman Jerry Kramer was not among them.
For that matter, neither was linebacker Dave Robinson.
The players who were nominated are Jack Butler, a cornerback for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and Dick Stanfel, a guard for the Detroit Lions and Washington Redskins, both members of the NFL’s All-Decade team of the 1950s.
According to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, “The Seniors Committee is comprised of nine members of the overall selection committee. Through mail vote, the 2012 senior nominees were reduced to a final list of candidates. Today, five members of the Seniors committee met in Canton to discuss each of the senior finalists. A senior nominee is an individual whose career ended at least 25 years ago.”
