The Pro Football Hall of Fame will welcome seven new members into its ranks on Saturday. Cris Carter, Bill Parcells, Larry Allen, Curley Culp, Jonathan Ogden, Dave Robinson and Warren Sapp will all be inducted, making them part of football's immortals.
ESPN2 and the NFL Network wil both have live coverage of the event when it gets underway at 7 p.m. ET. ESPN2 will have the bulk of their top football crew on hand to handle the event, too, with Trey Wingo, Tom Jackson and Sal Paolantonio handling TV duties. Chris Berman will also be there, but as the event's emcee and not be on the ESPN set.
NFL Network is providing blanket coverage of the entire weekend, including features on the inductees and a special recognizing the Hall of Fame's 50th anniversary. Rich Eisen will lead the NFL Network's weekend coverage while hosting the network's coverage of the induction itself.
Prior to the induction ceremony, NFL Network will air a special edition of NFL Total Access live from Canton with Eisen and Hall of Fame members Deion Sanders, Michael Irvin and Marshall Faulk.
Steve Mariucci, Brian Billick and Stacey Stales will also be on site for ESPN as they provide perspective on the entire induction class with in-depth looks at Parcells and Carter. Their features will include players who played for Parcells and Carter's wife's take on how being cut by the Eagles helped turn the wide receiver's life around.
