The four ex-Ravens are one of the 26 modern Pro Football Hall of Fame semi-finals.
Wide receivers Anquan Boldin, Steve Smith Sr., Devin Hester, and aggressive tackle Willie Anderson are all enshrined this year.
Smith and Hester are one of the seven qualified semi-finalists in the first year. This is the first time Bordin has become a semi-finalist.
Smith played the last three seasons of his career in Baltimore (2014-2016), making 195 catches with 2,534 yards and 14 touchdowns. His 2015 season was shortened by a laceration of the Achilles tendon.
A fierce competitor, Smith finished his eighth-placed career at Receiveyard (14,731). The five-time Pro Bowler was also a dynamic special team returnee early in his career.
Bordin was a major part of the Ravens Super Bowl XLVII run. He spent three of the 14 seasons in Baltimore (2010-2012), but officially retired as Raven in 2019.
During his time in Baltimore, Bordin caught 186 passes with 2,645 yards and 14 touchdowns. Bordin, a three-time professional bowler with a physical presence, was ranked 14th in history in the receive yard.
Hester and Anderson stayed in Baltimore for a short time. Anderson did the right tackle in 2018, started 11 games after a 12-year run and started four Pro Bowls in Cincinnati. Arguably the best repeater in NFL history, Hester played 12 games in Baltimore in 2016 after spending eight seasons in Chicago and two seasons in Atlanta.
