Buffalo Bills greats Steve Tasker and Cornelius Bennett both made the list of 25 semifinalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
The semifinalists, released Tuesday by the Hall of Fame, was pared from an initial group of 130 nominees announced in September. The group of 25 will be trimmed to a list of 15 modern-era finalists in January.
This marks the eighth time Tasker has made the final 25, and it’s his second straight year on the list. Tasker, who starred for the Bills from 1986 to 1997, also was a semifinalist in 2004, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012 and 2013.
It’s the first time as a semifinalist for Bennett, who retired after the 2000 season. Bennett starred for the Bills from 1987 to 1995, then played three seasons with Atlanta and two with Indianapolis.
