Alan Faneca Named a Finalist for HOF

The NFL released their list of finalists for the Hall of Fame Class of 2018 on Tuesday night. That list included former guard Alan Faneca who makes it as a finalist for the third year in a row.

Faneca spent ten years in Pittsburgh after being drafted in the first round in 1998. Faneca was named to the All-Pro team 8 times, and 9 times to the Pro Bowl. He helped pave the way for the Steelers when they won the Super Bowl in 2005.

Hines Ward, Gary Anderson
