Favre, Owens among Hall nominees
CANTON, OHIO— Brett Favre was among the 108 modern-day nominees for the Pro Football Hall of Fame class of 2016 announced Wednesday night. The NFL’s career leader in nearly every passing category when he retired after the 2010 season and winner of the 1997 Super Bowl with Green Bay, Favre leads a strong list of first-time nominees. That group includes Terrell Owens, one of the league’s most prolific receivers for most of his 15 pro seasons. Voting will culminate Feb. 6.
