The Pro Football Hall of Fame unveiled its list of 25 semifinalists for selection to be inducted in 2016.

It seems as if it's just a formality for Brett Favre to be among them, but the Hall formalized the next step by naming him a semifinalist for the honor on Tuesday.

He joins Kevin Greene, a linebacker in his playing days who was an assistant coach with the Packers in their 2010 Super Bowl championship season.

Others on the list include:
- Running back Terrell Davis
- Coach Tony Dungy
- Coach Jimmy Johnson
- Cornerback Ty Law
- Safety John Lynch
- Wide receiver Terrell Owens
- Tackle Orlando Pace
- Quarterback Kurt Warner

Favre will have his number retired by the Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving night during halftime of their game against the Chicago Bears (5 p.m. on 620WTMJ, 7 p.m. on TODAY'S TMJ4 and NBC26).

You can watch or listen to the number retirement ceremony on all those stations.
