Two Former Vikings Finalist For Pro Football Hall of Fame
Randy Moss and Steve Hutchinson are two former Minnesota Vikings that have been announced among the 15 finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Moss spent 7+ seasons with the Vikings, and he ranks second all-time with 156 receiving touchdowns, third with 15,292 receiving yards and is 15th in league history with 982 receptions. For the Vikings, Moss ranks second in Vikings history in catches (587), yards (9,316) and touchdowns (92).
Moss was inducted into the Vikings Ring of Honor this year in Week 1 against the Saints on Monday Night Football.
Hutchinson was a key contributor on the offensive line from 2006-2011, getting 89 starts in purple. He was a leader on the line that averaged over 130 yards per game on the ground, and was also a key member of the 2009 Vikings team that made the NFC Championship Game.
Both Moss and Hutchinson are in their first year of eligibility for the Hall of Fame, and if they don't get in this year, there is a great chance they get in down the road.
The Class of 2018 will be announced during NFL Honors, a two-hour awards show that will air on NBC and taped in Minnesota.
