Two former New Orleans Saints are among 25 semi-finalists on the list for the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Class of 2021.

The Hall of Fame announced the names yesterday, with Saints cornerback Eric Allen making the cut as a semi-finalist for the first time and linebacker Sam Mills netting his fourth overall nomination.

Allen played for the Saints from 1995 to 1997 and was a Pro Bowler in his first year, while Mills spent nine seasons in New Orleans, where he was a four-time Pro Bowler as a member of the Dome Patrol.

The list will be narrowed to 18 Finalists, with the Class of 2021 announced during the week of Super Bowl LV.
