Late owner Jack Kent Cooke and former general manager Bobby Beathard are among 17 people with ties to the Washington Redskins who are on the list of nominees for election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2010. The list was released Saturday.

Cooke, who ran the Redskins from 1979 until his death in 1997, and Beathard, the GM from 1978 to 1989, were last-minute additions to last year’s ballot, so this year marks their first full-fledged candidacies.

Guard Russ Grimm, who made it to the round of 10 during last year’s election, automatically returned to the ballot. He’s joined by former linemates Joe Jacoby and Jim Lachey, quarterback Joe Theismann, tight end Frank Wycheck, receivers Gary Clark, Henry Ellard, Irving Fryar and Andre Reed, running backs Larry Centers and Brian Mitchell, defensive linemen Dexter Manley and Charles Mann, linebacker Ken Harvey and late punter Reggie Roby.

Between five and seven candidates will be elected as members from this class.
