List of National Football Conference East Pro Football Hall of Fame inductees

This is a list of inductees into the Pro Football Hall of Fame that includes players, coaches, and contributors (e.g., owners and team or league officials) from the East division of the National Football Conference (NFC) who have "made outstanding contributions to professional football". As of 2015, 295 individuals have been enshrined, with 96 having played for, coached, or contributed to the NFC East teams (Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, and / or Washington Redskins have been enshrined.[1]

Enshrinees are selected by a 44-person selection committee which meets each year at the time and location of the Super Bowl. Current rules of the committee stipulate that between four and seven individuals are selected each year.[2] Any person may nominate an individual to the hall, provided the nominee has not played or coached for at least five seasons prior to the nomination.

In addition to the regular Selection Committee, which primarily focuses on contributions made over the past approximately thirty seasons, a nine-member Seniors Committee (which is a subset of the larger committee) submits two nominees each year whose contributions came prior to 1985.[2] These nominees are referred as "Seniors nominees" (formerly "old-timer" nominees).[3]
