West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin and Ohio Republican Rob Portman introduced legislation Thursday that would authorize the U.S. Mint to create the coin.
The Hall of Fame is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. Running back Curtis Martin and five others will be inducted in August.
Manchin says proceeds from the coin's sale would help support the Hall of Fame's efforts to preserve the history of football and acquire memorabilia. The bill comes at no cost to taxpayers.
