The Pro Football Hall of Fame will welcome 28 new members this weekend as former NFL stars are immortalized in Canton, Ohio. The enshrinement ceremony will be different this season since both the Centennial Class of 2020 and the Class of 2021 will be honored in front of their family and friends.

Because of the number of inductees, each will have six minutes to speak, according to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The 2020 class is headlined Edgerrin James, Troy Polamalu and Isaac Bruce. Former NFL head coaches Jimmy Johnson and Bill Cowher will be inducted as well. There will also be special video tributes for eight members of the 2020 class elected posthumously.

Former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning leads the 2021 class. He is joined by Calvin Johnson, Charles Woodson and John Lynch, among others. Drew Pearson finally ends his long wait to join, presented by his former teammate and fellow Hall of Famer Roger Staubach.
