Once Again, Joe Jacoby Named Semifinalist For Pro Football Hall Of Fame

Former Washington Redskins All-Pro tackle Joe Jacboy is once again a semifinalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

On Tuesday evening, Jacoby, who spent his entire 13-year playing career with the Redskins, was named one of 27 semifinalists for possible induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame with the Class of 2017.

It marks the eighth time that the Louisville product has been named a semifinalist. Although the wait for Jacoby to receive his gold jacket and bronze bust has been far too long now, he's gotten much closer to enshrinement as he's been a finalist each of the last two years.

From 1983-86, Jacoby earned four Pro Bowl berths and was named a first-team All-Pro on two occasions.

A member of the most famous offensive line in NFL history — "The Hogs" — Jacoby won three Super Bowls before retiring following the 1993 season.

The next step to Canton is the semifinalists to be narrowed to 18 finalists in January.

On Saturday, Feb. 3, 2018, in Minneapolis, the Pro Football Hall of Fame selection committee will determine who completes the Class of 2018.
