Seven former members of the Seattle Seahawks franchise, including three coaches and four players, have been nominated to the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2015.

A total of 113 players and coaches made the list and from the Seahawks those names included:

The three coaches have impressive resumes and all three brought good times to Seattle in their years in the Pacific Northwest.

Per the Seattle Times:

"Holmgren coached Seattle to its first Super Bowl in 2005 while Knox led Seattle to four playoff appearances while guiding the Seahawks from 1983-91. Flores won two Super Bowl titles with the Raiders and coached the Seahawks from 1992-94."

Alexander might be the biggest shoe-in to the Hall of Fame with one of the greatest careers in Seahawks franchise history.

He is the all-time Seahawks leader in rushing attempts (2,176), yards (9,429), touchdowns (100) and rushing yards per game (79.2).

In 2005, he was the NFL’s leading rusher with 1,880 yards and his 27 touchdowns were, at the time, an NFL record for most TDs in a single season.

Springs was drafted by the Seahawks in 1997 and played seven seasons in Seattle where he registered 367 tackles and 20 interceptions in 93 games.

Watters played the end of his brilliant career with the Seahawks. In his decade-long career, he rushed for at least 1,000 yards seven times and ran for 1,200 yards three times in his four years in Seattle. His 10,643 career rushing yards total are ranked No. 21 on the list of the NFL’s all-time leading rushers.

The 113 nominees for the Class of 2015 ballot “will be reduced to 25 semifinalists in November, and then to 15, which will be voted on the day before the Super Bowl,” according to Pro Football Talk.

There is a chance at least one of these former Seahawks will make it to Canton next year.

Who do you think it will be?
