TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Former Cardinals player Aeneas Williams has become the first player in the team's history with Arizona to be chosen for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Williams was one of seven people chosen at the Hall's selection committee's annual meeting.

The announcement was made at the NFL Honors award show in New York City on Saturday.

Ray Guy, the first punter elected, defensive end Michael Strahan, receiver Andre Reed and defensive end Claude Humphrey were also part of the class of 2014. Two first-time eligible players, linebacker Derrick Brooks and offensive tackle Walter Jones, were selected.

Cardinals team President Michael Bidwill says he couldn't think of a better candidate to become the first from the team's Arizona era to be honored.

Induction will be on Aug. 1 in Canton, Ohio.
