Former Pittsburgh Steelers players Jerome Bettis and Kevin Greene did not make the 2013 Pro Football Hall of Fame class.
On Saturday evening, the NFL announced the Pro Football Hall of Fame class of 2013.
This year's group featured a number of high profile players that were some of the best the league had ever seen. Unfortunately, there were a number of deserving candidates that did not make this year's cut. Of the notables, Michael Strahan, Jerome Bettis, Charles Haley and Kevin Greene, to name a few.

Bettis and Greene were two players very deserving of Hall of Fame recognition and could be back next year. Bettis was a long-time member of the Pittsburgh Steelers, but Greene also had a stop in the Steel City. Bettis is one of the most famous runners in league history, and Greene is currently third in sacks all-time (160).
Given the profile of both of these players, expect to see them make Hall of Fame push once again in 2014.
