ESPN Examines The 2017 PFHOF Class

A day before the 2017 Pro Football Hall of Fame class will be enshrined in Canton, ESPN Senior Writer Jeff Legwold provided readers an overview of this year's class with information about each member and what got them to the hall. 

The seven members of 2017 features a contributor in Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, a senior selection in Seahawks Legend Kenny Easley and five modern-era selections that include kicker Morten Andersen, running back Terrell Davis, defensive end Jason Taylor, running back LaDainian Tomlinson and quarterback Kurt Warner.

Here's what Legwold reminded fans about "The Enforcer" Easley:

Team:Seattle Seahawks (1981-87)

Presenter:High school coach Tommy Rhodes

Easley was the Seahawks' first-round pick in 1981 and was the league's Defensive Rookie of the Year that season. A five-time Pro Bowl selection, Easley's career was cut short by kidney problems. He was the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year in 1984 and was selected to the NFL's All-Decade team of the 1980s. A safety with a full résumé as a tackler and playmaker, he finished his career with 32 interceptions in 89 games, including a seven-interception season in 1983.
