CANTON, Ohio - (AP) -- Defensive end Michael Strahan has been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Strahan was one of the game's most dominant pass-rushers during 15 seasons with the New York Giants. He was a seven-time Pro Bowl selection and the league's Defensive Player of the Year in 2001.

Strahan had 22 1/2 sacks in 2001 to set the NFL single-season record. His 141 1/2 career sacks rank fifth on the NFL list.

He retired following the 2007 season, after helping the Giants win the Super Bowl.

Strahan closed the induction ceremony by being introduced by TV broadcaster Jay Glazer.

The seven-member Hall of Fame class is rounded out by receiver Andre Reed, offensive tackle Walter Jones, linebacker Derrick Brooks, defensive back Aeneas Williams, punter Ray Guy and defensive end Claude Humphrey.
