Ward spent his entire playing career with the Steelers from 1998 to 2011.

The list will be cut down to 15 finalists in January, then the Hall of Fame Selection Committee will meet early next year to determine the class.

Over the summer, five people with the Steelers organization were enshrined as members of the Class of 2020 and Class of 2021.
