Former Panther Kevin Greene among NFL Hall of Fame semifinalists

Former Carolina Panthers linebacker Kevin Greene has again made the list of 25 semifinalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, announced Wednesday.

Greene, a 15-year linebacker for the Rams, Steelers, Panthers and 49ers, has made the semifinalists list for eight consecutive years.

Greene played for Carolina from 1998-1999, and a nomination would make him the second former Panthers player (joining Reggie White) to be honored in the Hall of Fame.

Greene is joined on the ballot by four first-year candidates – linebacker Derrick Brooks, coach Tony Dungy, receiver Marvin Harrison and tackle Walter Jones. The list of 25 will narrow to 15 finalists, to be announced Jan. 8 on NFL Network.
