There are several former Bills on the 2012 Pro Football HOF preliminary nominee list. Here’s the rundown of names.

Cornelius Bennett
Drew Bledsoe
Larry Centers
Andre Reed
Fred Smerlas
Steve Tasker
Troy Vincent
Coach Chuck Knox

The complete list of nominees for the Class of 2012 consists of 103 candidates. From that list of nominees, the Pro Football Hall of Fame Selection Committee will choose 25 candidates who will advance as semifinalist nominees. The list of 25 semifinalists will be announced in mid-November.

The list of 25 semifinalists will be further reduced by a mail ballot to 15 modern-era finalists and announced in early January. 

The final list of nominees that will be considered for election will consist of the 15 modern-era finalists and the two senior nominees, former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive back Jack Butler and former Detroit Lions guard Dick Stanfel, who were selected this last month by the Hall of Fame’s Senior Selection Committee.
