CANTON, Ohio (AP) — Seattle Seahawks offensive tackle Walter Jones has been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Jones was a nine-time Pro Bowl selection who spent his entire 12-season career with the Seahawks. Jones was selected for induction in his first year of eligibility after retiring following the 2008 season.

Many regard Jones as one of the best tackles to play the game. According to statistics kept by the Seahawks, he was responsible for allowing just 23 sacks and called for holding just nine times in 180 career games.

Jones was presented for induction by his son, Walterius Jones.

The seven-member Hall of Fame class is rounded out by defensive end Michael Strahan, receiver Andre Reed, linebacker Derrick Brooks, defensive back Aeneas Williams, punter Ray Guy and defensive end Claude Humphrey.
