Canton, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Minnesota Vikings center Mick Tingelhoff was selected as the senior nominee for the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Class of 2015.

Tingelhoff will be an automatic finalist on the ballot next February.

A six-time Pro Bowl selection and five-time First-Team All-Pro, Tingelhoff never missed a game in 17 seasons with the Vikings from 1962-78. He started all 240 games he played and appeared in 19 postseason games, including four Super Bowls.

Tingelhoff will join 15 yet-to-be-named modern-era finalists in addition to two contributor finalists from which the Class of 2015 will be selected. The Pro Football Hall of Fame's selection meeting will be held on Jan. 31, 2015, in Arizona, the day before Super Bowl XLIX.
