Is this the year that Rodney Harrison and/or Vince Wilfork finally get into the Pro Football Hall of Fame?

Both Patriots legends were among 25 modern-era players who were announced Tuesday as semifinalists for the class of 2024. It’s the third time that both Harrison and Wilfork were named semifinalists.

Harrison and Wilfork both are members of the Patriots Hall of Fame, with Wilfork receiving the honor last year and Harrison earning enshrinement in 2019. They combined to win four Super Bowls during their respective New England careers, including one as teammates in 2004.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame will announce the 2024 class on Feb. 8. The list of nominees will be trimmed to 15 sometime before that.
