The Pro Football Hall of Fame will induct their 2012 class on Saturday evening. The class consists of six former greats, including Seattle Seahawks great Cortez Kennedy. The other five members are Jack Butler, Dermontti Dawson, Chris Doleman, Curtis Martin and Willie Roaf.
Following their induction, the Pro Football Hall of Fame will consist of 273 players, coaches, broadcasters and other personnel.
Kennedy, who played with the Seahawks from 1990 to 2000, played a total 167 games with the franchise. He was voted to eight Pro Bowls, a team record. Despite playing on a last-place team in 1992, Kennedy was named the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year. He racked up 58 sacks, three interceptions and even had a scoop-and-score in his career.
The induction ceremony will begin at 7 p.m. EST / 4 p.m. locally in Seattle and on the west coast. There will also be fan festivities and autograph sessions throughout the weekend for those in attendance. ESPN and NFL Network will have live coverage of the induction ceremony.
