The 2016 Pro Football Hall of Fame nominees are being made public for the first time and the list is headlined by some big time names. Brett Favre and Terrell Owens, namely. Favre seems like a lock and Owens should be as well, but he rubbed a lot of people the wrong way during his career.

The NFL’s career leader in nearly every passing category when he retired after the 2010 season and winner of the 1997 Super Bowl with Green Bay, Favre leads a strong list of first-time nominees.
