The Seniors Committee of the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced their two candidates for the Class of 2012 on Wednesday, nominating former Steelers CB Jack Butler and OG Dick Stanfel, who played for the Lions and Redskins.

Butler, who played in Pittsburgh from 1951-1959, was a four-time Pro Bowler. He finished his career with 52 interceptions, which ranked second all-time when he retired.

Stanfel, a pro from 1952-58, played the first four years of his career with the Lions before going to the Redskins for the final three. He was voted to five Pro Bowls and helped Detroit win the NFL championship in '52 and '53.

Both players will join 15 modern-era candidates of the final list of Class of 2012 nominees. On February 4, 2012, the Hall's selection committee will vote on all 17 players, with any finalist needing 80 percent voting support to earn enshrinement.

Senior nominees are individuals whose careers have been finished for at least 25 years.
