Strahan, Brooks headline 2014 Hall of Fame class

New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Walter Jones, Derrick Brooks and Michael Strahan headline the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Class of 2014.

Also voted in on Saturday were Andre Reed, Aeneas Williams, Claude Humphrey and Ray Guy. Jones and Brooks were in their first year of eligibility while Guy and Humphrey were both finalists chosen by the Hall's Seniors Committee.

Tony Dungy and Marvin Harrison teamed up to win a Super Bowl together while with the Indianapolis Colts, but the head coach-wide receiver tandem were left off the list.

Saturday's annual selection meeting was held at the Super Bowl XLVIII Media Center in New York City. The newest members of the Hall of Fame were selected from a list of 17 finalists who had been determined earlier by the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Selection Committee.

Brooks was a linebacker for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 1995-2008. He made 11 Pro Bowls and never missed a game during his 14-season career.

The 40-year-old Brooks was named NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2002 after helping the Buccaneers win the franchise's first Super Bowl.

Strahan was a defensive end for the New York Giants from 1993-2007. He was not chosen for the Hall of Fame last season in his first year of eligibility.

The 42-year-old Strahan was named the 2001 NFL Defensive Player of the Year after setting an NFL single-season record with 22 1/2 sacks. A five-time All- Pro selection and seven-time Pro Bowler, Strahan amassed 141 1/2 sacks in his 15-season career.

Jones was an offensive tackle for the Seattle Seahawks from 1997-2009. A member of the NFL's All-Decade Team of the 2000s, he was named All-Pro six times and voted to nine Pro Bowls.

Reed caught 951 passes for 13,198 yards and 87 touchdowns in his 16-season career with the Buffalo Bills (1985-1999) and Washington Redskins (2000). He was the Bills' leading receiver in each of their four Super Bowl seasons.

Williams was a cornerback and safety with the Phoenix/Arizona Cardinals (1991-2000) and St. Louis Rams (2001-2004). A four-time All-Pro and eight-time Pro Bowl selection, he intercepted 55 passes for 807 yards and nine touchdowns during his 14-season career.

Humphrey was a defensive lineman with the Atlanta Falcons (1968-1978) and Philadelphia Eagles (1979-1981). He was named first-team All-Pro five times and earned six Pro Bowl nods during his career.

Guy is the first punter to ever make the Hall of Fame. He played with the Oakland/Los Angeles Raiders from 1973-1986.

Running back Jerome Bettis, Harrison, linebacker/defensive end Kevin Greene, defensive end Charles Haley and guard Will Shields had made the cut from 15 modern-era finalists to 10, but did not make the cut to the five players to be voted on for the Class of 2014. Former 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo, wide receiver Tim Brown, safety John Lynch, Dungy and kicker Morten Andersen did not make the cut from 15 to 10 in Saturday's selection meeting.
