After seeing his team win their first Superbowl, Seahawks legend Walter Jones will join the Hall of Fame on August 2nd.
As the most respected player in Seahawks history, it may be only fitting that Offensive Tackle Walter Jones be inducted to the Hall of Fame in the same year that his team won their first Superbowl.
Accomplishments: 9 Pro Bowls, 6 All-Pro selections, named to the 2000s All-Decades team
Why He Is Deserving: Walter Jones was NFC’s best offensive lineman for over a decade. His ability to protect the blind side helped the Seahawks to go to the Playoffs six times, and allowed RB Shaun Alexander to score 100 TDs in only 8 years. Jones was extremely durable as well, starting 180 games in 12 seasons.
Most Incredible Season: 2005 – In addition to being named All-Pro and a Pro Bowler, Jones blocked for All-Pro RBs Mack Strong and Shaun Alexander, enabling Alexander to set an NFL record 27 rushing TDs. The team led the league in scoring and went to their first Superbowl that year.
