GREEN BAY, Wis. — The man who invented the 'Lambeau Leap' will not be jumping into the Pro Football Hall of Fame just yet. Former Packers safety LeRoy Butler was left off the list of 15 finalists announced Thursday.

Butler spent his entire career with the Packers totaling 38 interceptions, 20.5 sacks and 13 forced fumbles. He was a four-time Pro-Bowler and a member of the super Bowl XXXI championship team.

Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews' father was also left off the list of finalists.
