Former Atlanta offensive tackle Georg Kunz probably won’t make it to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. But he’s got a shot at the Hall of Very Good.
The Professional Football Researchers Association has announced its finalists for the Hall of Very Good Class of 2012 and Kunz, who played for the Falcons from 1979 through 1984 and later played for the Colts, is on it. Kunz is the only player with NFC South ties on this year’s list of finalists.
If Kunz makes the Hall of Very Good, he’ll join former Atlanta players Claude Humphrey, who was selected in 2009, and Tommy Nobis, who was selected in 2005.
