Stabler and Stanfel were chosen by the seniors committee, which honors players whose careers ended more than 25 years ago, according to the committee.
The contributor committee, which aims to shine a light on officials, owners and other groups historically neglected by the committee, chose to honor five-time Super Bowl-winning former San Francisco 49ers owner DeBartolo. Described as a “players' owner,” DeBartolo owned the San Francisco 49ers from 1977 to 2000.
"Could you ask for a better script?" DeBartolo asked reporters in San Francisco. "It's the 50th Super Bowl and it's in the Bay Area where you made your contribution to this great sport. Did I think that it was too good to be true? I certainly did. But like I said, it's almost like somebody scripted it."
The inductees will be officially enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in a ceremony at the Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium in Canton, Ohio, on Aug. 6.
