Quarterback Steve McNair, running back Eddie George, wide receiver Derrick Mason, fullback Lorenzo Neal and kicker Gary Anderson are all part of the aforementioned group.
The biggest names that will jump out at Titans fans are McNair and George. Both players posted impressive individual careers and are arguably the two greatest players in franchise history.
On top of that, they played an integral role in bringing Tennessee to its first and only Super Bowl appearance. In 2019, McNair and George had their numbers retired and are in the franchise’s Ring of Honor.
Two former Tennessee Oilers are also included in the list of nominees: punter Reggie Roby and returner/wide receiver Mel Gray, who also played for the Oilers when they were in Houston.
All seven of the aforementioned players from the franchise have been nominated before.
The selection process will see the 130 modern-era nominees whittled down to 25 in November, and then 15 in January before the Selection Committee makes its ultimate decision in February.
There are currently four players in the Hall of Fame who have donned a Titans jersey during their career: wide receiver Randy Moss, and offensive linemen Kevin Mawae, Steven Hutchinson and Bruce Matthews.
