The Seattle Seahawks have some big names included on the list of nominees for the 2023 Pro Football Hall of Fame class.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame revealed its first list of 129 potential modern-era nominees for the class of 2023 on Tuesday and a handful of former Seattle Seahawks made the cut, including safety Kam Chancellor, running back Shaun Alexander, and quarterback Dave Krieg. 

The list of 129 will be reduced to 25 in November and the final cut of 15 in January.

Alexander is Seattle's all-time leading rusher by a wide margin, as he leads the franchise in rushing attempts (2,176), rushing yards (9,429), rushing touchdowns (100), and yards per game (79.2).

He won league MVP in 2005 after leading the league in rush attempts (370), rushing yards (1,880), and rushing touchdowns (27) while averaging 117.5 yards per game.
