Clare Farnsworth of Seahawks.com has the details on former Seattle Seahawks offensive tackle Walter Jones, who will be eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame a year earlier than expected.
Per Farnsworth, Jones was anticipated to be eligible for the Hall of Fame in 2015. However, Jones spent the entire 2009 season on the injured reserve with a nagging knee issue, so the Hall determined that his waiting period began a year earlier.
Voted to the Pro Bowl nine times and six-time All-Pro, Jones is considered one of the best offensive tackles to play the game.
John Beech of CBS Sports predicts Jones will be a first-ballot Hall of Famer as part of the 2014 class.
