Richard Seymour is officially a member of the Hall of Fame.

The former Patriot was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, along with seven others as part of the Class of 2022 on Saturday.

As part of the usual ceremonies, each inductee chose someone close to them to introduce them before delivering their speech. Seymour chose his high school principal, Titus Duren. Along with a montage of Seymour’s career, Duren spoke for three minutes about Seymour’s character and his dominance as a player.

Seymour took the stage right after, giving a 10-minute speech. He thanked his family members and several of his former Patriots teammates as well as Robert Kraft and Bill Belichick. He also thanked the Raiders, with whom he played the last four seasons of his career.

Seymour is the 10th Patriots player to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He joined former teammates Ty Law, Randy Moss and Junior Seau. He also joins Bill Parcells, Curtis Martin, Nick Buoniconti, Mike Haynes and John Hannah.
