“This is the first time our class has included only players,” said Steelers president Art Rooney II in a statement. “I think that is great. It recognizes what a great number of players we have. It’s really a great class.
“Over the years we have become known as a franchise that has always put strong defense on the field. Some of our most significant players in history have been defensive players. I guess that is how it should be as Steelers football has evolved.”
The Steelers say in order to be considered, a player must be retired at least three years and played a minimum of three seasons for Pittsburgh. Former coaches and contributors must have made “significant contributions” to the team and community, the Steelers say.
