Eleven just may be legendary Idaho Vandal Jerry Kramer's lucky number. The former Green Bay Packer great is getting another shot at the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Kramer along with ex-Houston Oiler linebacker Robert Brazile were picked as senior finalists of the Class of 2018.

It was twenty years ago when he was last up for consideration as a finalist. He has been nominated a nine times more than any other modern day nominee, that’s more than any other player not in the hall.

"I was in Wisconsin signing stuff and one of the guys called me and congratulated me and I said for what, he said you've been chosen as a finalist into the Pro Football Hall of Fame we'll thank you very much my stomach did a few flip flops and said, wow, that's cool,” Kramer said to 6 On Your Side about how he found out.

Kramer, a member of the famed Vince Lombardi Packers of the 1960's will find out Super Bowl week of next year if he will officially be inducted into hall of fame.
