In The Region:
The Pro Football Hall of Fame's Class of 2014 includes two players eligible for decades, and another involved in one of the biggest comebacks in NFL history.
The Seahawks play in Superbowl XLVII in a few hours, and one of their standout players from the past decade is headed to the Hall of Fame. Tackle Walter Jones made the cut in his first year of eligibility. He’s joined by lineman Claude Humphrey, who played for the Atlanta Falcons in the 70s, and punter Ray Guy, who won three Superbowls with the Raiders in the ‘70s and ‘80s. They were both selected by the Seniors Committee.

Andre Reed played in – and lost -- 4 Superbowls with the Buffalo Bills, but he also caught three touchdowns in a 1993 playoff game against the Houston Oilers. The Bills had been down 35-3 in the third quarter and rallied to win in what’s become known simply as “The Comeback.”

Rounding out the class of 2014 are Michael Strahan of the New York Giants, now best known as co-host of Live with Kelly and Michael, Aeneas Williams of the Cardinals and Derrick Brooks of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The seven will be enshrined in the Hall of Fame in August.

This year's finalists were Morten Andersen, Jerome Bettis, Tim Brown, Edward DeBartolo Jr., Tony Dungy, Kevin Greene, Charles Haley, Marvin Harrison, Walter Jones, John Lynch and Will Shields.
