On Thursday, the modern-era nominees for the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Class of 2019 were revealed.

Over 17 seasons with Kansas City (1997-08) and the Atlanta Falcons (2009-13), Gonzalez earned 14 Pro Bowl selections (1999-08, 2010-13) and 10 first- or second-team All-Pro honors from the Associated Press. The finalists will go from 15 to 10, and then down to five. Among his 64 career picks were returns for touchdowns of 106 and 107 yards.

After eight seasons as an NFL halfback with the Cowboys (he was part of two Super Bowl teams), Reeves became one of the longest-tenured coaches in the leagues' history.
