Two Bills Wall of Famers have made the Pro Football Hall of Fame list of semifinalists for the Class of 2012.

All-time leading receiver Andre Reed and 7-time Pro Bowl special teamer Steve Tasker made the cut from the preliminary list as announced by the Hall Tuesday.

The list of 26 semifinalists will be reduced by mail ballot to 15 modern-era finalists.  That list increases to 17 finalist nominees with the inclusion of the two recommended candidates of the Hall of Fame’s Seniors Committee.  The Seniors Committee nominees, who were announced in August, are cornerback Jack Butler, Pittsburgh Steelers (1951-59) and guard Dick Stanfel, Detroit Lions (1952-55); Washington Redskins (1956-58). 

The results of the modern-era reduction vote to 15 finalists will be announced in early January, 2012.
