Eddie DeBartolo, Charles Haley Finalists for HOF

Posted Jan 10, 2014

The former 49ers owner and pass rusher are two of 15 nominees hoping to gain entrance to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Former 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo revealed last month that ex-49ers pass rusher Charles Haley had asked him to speak on his behalf should Haley gain entrance to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Now the question becomes: Who would induct Eddie?

Haley and DeBartolo were named among 15 finalists for the Hall's 2014 class.

Between four and seven of the nominees will be enshrined after the Feb. 1 vote takes place. Other finalists include Michael Strahan, Tony Dungy, John Lynch, Walter Jones, Marvin Harrison, Derrick Brooks, Tim Brown and Jerome Bettis.

Also among the 15 is another ex-49ers pass rusher in Kevin Greene, who racked up 10.5 of his 160 career sacks in his lone 1997 campaign in San Francisco.

Haley finished his 13-year career with 100.5 sacks, spending eight seasons with the 49ers.

DeBartolo owned the team during each of its five successful Super Bowl seasons.
