Dick Stanfel, a guard who finished his career with three seasons with the Washington Redskins in the 1950s, was among the finalists in voting for the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday, but fell short of election.
Stanfel and Jack Butler, a cornerback for the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 1950s who was selected to the Hall’s Class of 2012, were automatically included in the final round of voting as nominees of the senior committee.
Running back Curtis Martin, defensive linemen Chris Doleman and Cortez Kennedy and offensive linemen Dermontti Dawson and Willie Roaf were also selected by the media members who serve as Hall of Fame voters. Enshrinement ceremonies are scheduled for August in Canton, Ohio.
