Gil Brandt and Pat Bowlen were added as contributors while Johnny Robinson was added as a member of the Senior Committee.

"While he is probably the most unpredictable and dynamic defensive player in league history, I believe his best achievement is being a great dad", Ravens coach John Harbaugh said in a statement. Reed helped Baltimore capture its second Super Bowl during the 2012 season. He ranks behind only Jerry Rice in career receptions.

Gonzalez started in Kansas City and finished in Atlanta, where voters met on the eve of the Super Bowl to select the Class of 2019; they didn't need much time to debate his worthiness.

Bailey revolutionized his position as one of the first players to shadow his opponent's No. 1 receiver. Six of his eight Pro Bowl selections and two of his three first-team All-Pro selections came while he was a member of Gang Green. He was a six-time All-Pro, made 14 Pro Bowls, and his 916 catches with the Chiefs set one of 22 franchise records he held upon his retirement.

Reed, an 11-year vet with the Ravens and Texans, was named to nine Pro Bowls, five All-Pro teams and was the 2004 AP Defensive Player of the Year. He played in 203 regular-season games and made 53 interceptions, returning seven for touchdowns.

Mawae, an eight-time Pro Bowler, and two-time first-team All-Pro was the NFL's All-Decade center for the 2000s.

Mawae, who played 16 seasons, anchored the New York Jets offensive line that led the way for 44 100-yard games and seven 1,000-yard seasons by Hall of Fame running back Curtis Martin. He's happy for the Bowlen family, which has been through a lot in recent years with both Pat and his wife Annabel battling Alzheimer's disease.

Brandt was the Cowboys' vice president of player personnel from 1960-88, which included two world championship seasons. He helped create the NFL Scouting Combine as a centralization of the draft's evaluation process.

Reed is the first pure safety to be inducted into the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility since Ken Houston in 1986. He was named National Football League defensive player on the year in 2004 and was a leader on the Ravens when they won Super Bowl XLVII.
