The Hogs played a huge part in the Redskins’ Super Bowl titles; with Jacoby passed over for Hall of Fame honors, only one (Russ Grimm) is enshrined in Canton.

The former "Hog" inched one step closer towards becoming the sixth Redskins inductee from the Joe Gibbs era.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame announced the 94 nominees eligible to be inducted into the 2017 class and a number of them have Redskins ties.

For the 18th consecutive season, Redskins great Joe Jacoby is passed over for induction into the NFL Hall of Fame.

Former Redskins left tackle Joe Jacoby, a member of the famed 'Hogs' offensive line during the 1980s and early '90s, is a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

This represents the fifth time that Jacoby, one of the members of the famed Hogs of the 1980s and early '90s, has reached the semifinal round. It's the fourth consecutive year that Jacoby has reached the semifinals.

The longtime Redskins offensive tackle does not make the cut for the 2014 Hall of Fame class.

Next cut to 15 finalists comes Jan. 8 as the former Redskins tackle tries to join Russ Grimm in representing the "Hogs" in Canton.

LB Dave Robinson is a senior nominee
