In The Region:
The Pro Football Hall of Fame parade is running through Canton this morning, honoring the enshrinees of 2014.

Seattle Seahawks tackle Walter Jones made the cut in his first year of eligibility. He’s joined by defensive end 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. Guy is also the first punter to be enshrined in Canton.

Andre Reed played in – and lost -- 4 Superbowls with the Buffalo Bills.Rounding out the class of 2014 are Michael Strahan, now best known as Regis Philbin’s replacement on what’s now “Live with Kelly and Michael,” plus Aeneas Williams of the Cardinals and Derrick Brooks of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

All seven will be enshrined at a ceremony tonight at Fawcett Stadium in Canton. And tomorrow night, the Buffalo Bills meet the New York Giants to kick off the NFL’s preseason with the annual Hall of Fame game.
