Among them is defensive end and team captain, Justin Tuck, who is in his first year of eligibility, and running back Tiki Barber.
Tuck was a third-round pick of the Giants in the 2005 NFL Draft out of Notre Dame and went on to win two Super Bowl titles with the team over his nine-year stint in East Rutherford. He spent the final two seasons of his career with the Oakland Raiders before retiring as a member of the Giants (one-day contract).
In 2016, the Giants inducted Tuck into their Ring of Honor.
Barber was a second-round pick of the Giants in the 1997 NFL Draft out of Virginia and earned three Pro Bowl nods and one All-Pro honor during his 10-year stint with the team. Barber retired in 2006 and was indicted into the team’s Ring of Honor in 2010.
Barber remains the Giants’ all-time leading rusher (10,449).
The seven other former Giants who were listed among the 2021 Pro Football Hall of Fame modern-era nominees are running back Herschel Walker, tight end Jeremy Shockey, guard Chris Snee, punters Jeff Feagles and Sean Landeta, kick returner Brian Mitchell and offensive tackle Lomas Brown.
