Junior Seau Leads Fantastic 2015 Hall Of Fame Class


The NFL announced this years inductees into the Pro-Football Hall of Fame last night during their 4th annual NFL Awards show. This years class is one of the best, which is what it should be. It is also anchored by the late,and former Miami Dolphin, Junior Seau.

More from Dolphins News

Seau played for the San Diego Chargers, the Miami Dolphins, and the New England Patriots and while his play on the field will never be forgotten, his death most certainly never will either. Seau committed suicide just over two years ago on May 2nd, 2012. His death has launched awareness to brain damage caused from concussions as well as awareness to the toll of depression but it’s his play that makes him a Hall of Famer.

In his 13 year career, Seau went to 12 Pro-Bowls and was named first team All-Pro six times. He amassed 1,522 tackles and 18 fumble recoveries and 18 interceptions. There was never a question of whether he would be a first ballot Hall of Famer. He played three seasons with the Dolphins from 2005 until 2008.

  • Joining Seau will be Oakland wide-receiver Tim Brown who probably should have been in before Michael Irvin and Andre Reed. Brown was statistically better than both. His induction was long overdue.

    Will Shields will be yet another Kansas City Chiefs lineman to make the Hall of Fame. His career was highlighted by 12 straight Pro-Bowl’s. Former Dallas Cowboy and San Francisco 49’er defensive player Charles Haley is who is the only player in NFL history to win five Super Bowl rings. Jerome “the bus” Bettis didn’t have to wait more than two years for his election into the HOF. The running back who played for both the Rams and Steelers carved out his name with bruising hits that looked to be throwbacks to the days of the 70’s bullish rushers.

    The cast of players is joined by special contributors Ron Wolf and Bill Polian. Polian built the Buffalo Bills four Super Bowl teams and was in charge of the Peyton Manning Indianapolis Super Bowl team as well. Finally, senior committee nominee Mick Tingelhoff played 17 seasons and 259 games for the Minnesota Vikings.
