Mawae, Hutchinson Among Hall of Fame Semifinalists

Posted Nov 22, 2017

Former Titans offensive linemen Kevin Mawae and Steve Hutchinson are among the 27 semifinalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2018. Receiver Randy Moss, who spent the second half of the 2010 season with the team, is also among the first-year eligible who made the list.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Former Titans offensive linemen Kevin Mawae and Steve Hutchinson are among the 27 Modern-era semifinalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2018.

Receiver Randy Moss, who spent the second half of the 2010 season with the team, is also among the first-year eligible players who made the list.

Mawae played 16 NFL seasons (1994-2009), including four seasons with the Titans (2006). He began his career with the Seahawks and also played with the Jets before retiring after the 2009 season in Tennessee.

Mawae was named to eight All-Pro teams, and eight Pro Bowls during his career while playing in 241 career games.

Mawae made the final 10 last year.

Hutchinson played in 169 games over 12 NFL seasons, from 2001-2012. He played in 2012 with the Titans, and now works in the scouting department with the team.

Moss caught 982 passes for 15,292 yards and 156 touchdowns in 14 NFL seasons (1998-2012). He spent the second half of the 2010 season with the Titans, where he played in eight games after being claimed off waivers. He caught six passes for 80 yards that season.

The list of semifinalists was reduced from an initial group of 108 nominees. The next step in the selection process comes in January when the semifinalists are trimmed to 15 Modern-Era Finalists.

The Selection Committee will meet on Saturday, Feb. 3, 2018 – the day before Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis, Minn. to elect the Class of 2018.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2018 will be formally enshrined next August in Canton.
