Junior Seau, Kurt Warner and Tony Dungy are among 26 semifinalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s class of 2015.

Seau and Warner are among eight first-year candidates in the balloting. Dungy is in his second year on the ballot.

Former general managers Bill Polian and Ron Wolf previously were selected as contributor finalists. Mick Tingelhoff is the senior committee nominee, and there will be 15 modern era finalists to be considered on Jan. 31, the day before the Super Bowl, in Phoenix.

Inductions will be in August at the Canton, Ohio shrine.

Other semifinalists include receivers Marvin Harrison, Tim Brown and newcomers Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt; running backs Jerome Bettis, Terrell Davis, Roger Craig and newcomer Edgerrin James; safeties John Lynch, Darren Woodson and Steve Atwater; defensive ends/linebackers Charles Haley and Kevin Greene; linebacker Karl Mecklenburg; newcomer cornerback Ty Law; offensive tackles Joe Jacoby, Mike Kenn and newcomer Orlando Pace; guard Will Shields; newcomer center Kevin Mawae; placekicker Morten Andersen; and coaches Don Coryell and Jimmy Johnson.

Last January, Harrison, Dungy, Andersen, Bettis, Brown, Haley, Greene, Lynch and Shields were finalists.

Inducted this year were Derrick Brooks, Walter Jones, Michael Strahan, Ray Guy, Claude Humphrey, Aeneas Williams and Andre Reed.
