First-year eligible finalist Walter Jones and Will Shields are the only offensive linemen hoping to earn election into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. If elected, Jones would join Steve Largent and Cortez Kennedy as the only longtime Seahawks elected to the Hall of Fame. Shields has 12 Pro Bowl nods, a feat matched by only three members of the Hall of Fame. Here is how these offensive linemen contrasts to the 39 modern-era offensive linemen already enshrined in Canton.
