Former Cardinals Anquan Boldin, Dwight Freeney are Hall of Fame semifinalists again

The Pro Football Hall of Fame announced Tuesday the 25 modern-day semifinalists to make the 2024 class of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. That group of 25 former players include two former Arizona Cardinals — receiver Anquan Boldin and pass rusher Dwight Freeney.

Boldin is a semifinalist for the third time. He was drafted by the Cardinals in the second round in 2003 and played for them from 2003-2009.

After going on to play for the Ravens, 49ers and Lions, he finished his career 1,076 receptions for 13,779 yards and 82 touchdowns.

Freeney played most of the 2015 season for the team and had eight sacks in 11 games. He finished his career with 125.5 sacks.

Freeney is a semifinalist for the second time.

The 25 finalists will be pared down to 15 finalists before final voting for the final 2024 class.
