The Pro Football Hall of Fame announced the modern-era enshrinees for the Class of 2020 today, and two former Seattle Seahawks — guard Steve Hutchinson and running back Edgerrin James — were inducted.

Hutchinson becomes the fifth player drafted by the Seahawks to get inducted into the Hall of Fame, joining Kenny Easley, Cortez Kennedy, Walter Jones and Kevin Mawae.

Hutchinson had been a finalist the past few years, and he finally broke through. He was a seven-time Pro Bowler and was named an All-Pro five times in an 11-year career.

He is now enshrined alongside Jones, his neighbor on the left side of Seattle’s offensive line in 2005, when running back Shaun Alexander won the MVP after rushing for 1,880 yards and 27 touchdowns.

James is known far more for his time with the Colts, but he did finish his playing career with the Seahawks, appearing in seven games during the 2009 season and rushing 46 times for 125 yards.

James was a four-time Pro Bowler and an All-Pro in 1999, rushing for 12,246 yards and 80 touchdowns in his career, both in the top 20 all-time.

James and Hutchinson were joined by three other players in the class of 2020: safeties Troy Polamalu and Steve Atwater, along with wide receiver Isaac Bruce. They will be formally enshrined in a ceremony in Canton, Ohio, this summer.
