Richard Seymour, a former Georgia player, is part of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2022 that was revealed Thursday night at NFL Honors, just ahead of Super Bowl LVI.

Seymour was a member of the New England Patriots’ first 3 Super Bowl winners and joins cornerback Ty Law (Class of 2019) as the first 2 defenders from those Patriots teams in the Hall.

Seymour will be the fifth Bulldog inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, joining Charley Trippi, Fran Tarkenton, Terrell Davis, and Champ Bailey.

At Georgia, Seymour was an All-American in 2000 and a 2-time All-SEC selection. The 6-foot-3, 300-pounder from Gadsden, S.C., ended his collegiate career with 233 tackles, including 26 for loss and 10 sacks.

In 2015, he was inducted into the Georgia-Florida Game Hall of Fame and was named one of the “Legends of SEC Football.” In 2018, he was inducted into the State of South Carolina Hall of Fame.

Here’s his description from the NFL:

Richard Seymour: A fixture of this century’s defining dynasty, Seymour won 3 Super Bowls as a member of the New England Patriots. As the 6th overall pick of the 2001 draft. Seymour was in Foxborough from nearly the very start of the Bill Belichick era. While later Patriots teams were regarded as offensive juggernauts, Seymour and New England’s defense were the catalysts for the franchise’s first few runs at Lombardi. The Patriots were a top-eight scoring defense in six of the defensive lineman’s eight seasons with the team — and top four in four. Seymour spent the final four years of his 12-year career with the Oakland Raiders, sent away by Belichick like so many Patriots greats before him. In all, he recorded 57.5 career sacks and was a member of the 2000s Hall of Fame All-Decade Team. The seven-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro is now in Canton for all time in his fifth year of eligibility and his fourth time as a finalist.
