The Steelers are well represented among the nominees for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2019. To this day, Mitchell holds National Football League records for most total return yards, most all-purpose yards in a single decade, combined return yards in the postseason, and many other return records. Bailey would spend the next decade in Denver, totaling 34 interceptions (including 10 in 2006), three first team All-Pro selections, and eight Pro Bowl appearances. He made five All-Pro squads, was the 2004 Defensive Player of the Year, and joined Gonzalez on the all-decade team.

In addition to the 11 player nominees and one coach nominee, the Broncos also have a contributor finalist: owner Pat Bowlen.

Bailey began his career with Washington in 1999 as the seventh overall draft choice.

Finalists from 2018 who are nominated again include running back Edgerrin James; wide receiver Isaac Bruce; offensive linemen Kevin Mawae, Steve Hutchinson, Alan Faneca and Tony Boselli; safety John Lynch; and cornerback Ty Law.

Also on the ballot are former Chiefs coaches Marty Schottenheimer and Dick Vermeil.

According to the official release: "Eighteen finalists will be presented to the full 48-member Pro Football Hall of Fame Selection Committee during its annual meeting on "Selection Saturday", the day before Super Bowl LIII". The list will be whittled down to 25 in November and to 15 finalists in January. That means Denver will be a prime candidate to play in next year's Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio.
