2013 Senior NFL Hall of Fame Finalists: Culp, Robinson

CANTON, Ohio (AP) — Defensive tackle Curley Culp and linebacker Dave Robinson have been chosen by the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s seniors committee as finalists for election into the class of 2013.

The two will join 15 modern-era candidates yet to be selected on a list from which the Hall of Fame class will be chosen. The selection meeting is Feb. 2, the day before the Super Bowl in New Orleans.

Culp was a six-time Pro Bowl selection who played six-plus season with Kansas City. He helped the Chiefs to a Super Bowl championship following the 1969 season. He also played for Houston and Detroit.

Robinson was a first-round pick of Green Bay in 1963. A three-time Pro Bowler, he helped anchor a defense that won three straight championships, including the first two Super Bowls. He played 10 seasons with the Packers and two with Washington.

To get elected, seniors must receive the same 80 percent voting support that is required of all finalists.
