  • Lomas Brown Jason Hanson among 122 nominees for 2020 Hall of Fame class

Former South Carolina great John Abraham is one of the Modern-Era player nominees for the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Class of 2020.

The newly eligible players have a heavy defensive emphasis.

Nominees from the modern-era are trimmed from 122 to 25 semifinalists in November and then down to 15 finalists after the regular season.

Atwater spent 10 of his 11 National Football League seasons in Denver, where he recorded eight Pro Bowl nods and two first-team All-Pro selections. Modern-era players are defined by the hall as those to play after the 1970 season. Later they'll announce senior, contributor and coaching candidates for enshrinement into the 2020 Hall of Fame class. The mauling guard was a seven time Pro Bowler and a five-time All-Pro during his career, which spanned from 2001-2012.

Atwater is a two-time finalist, while Lynch has been named a finalist on six occasions.

The list of former 49ers who are nominees for the 2020 class includes Jeff Garcia, Ricky Watters, Brent Jones, Bryant Young, Merton Hanks and Tim McDonald. That list will be trimmed to 25 players in November and then 15 finalists in January that will be voted on February 1 at the Super Bowl in Miami.

The Centennial Class of 2020 will be formally enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame during the annual Enshrinement Week from August 6-9, 2020, and the Centennial Celebration in Canton on September 16-19, 2020. The group will include five Modern-Era players to come from the list announced today in addition to 10 Seniors (a player who has been retired for more than 25 seasons), three Contributors (an individual other than a player or coach) and two Coaches. A 25-person centennial "blue ribbon" panel will lead the selection of the senior, coaches and contributors.
