NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The names of 15 Modern-Era Finalists for the 2017 Pro Football Hall of Fame class were released Tuesday and, in his third year of eligibility, former Tennessee Titans center Kevin Mawae was among those announced.
An NFL veteran of 16 seasons (1994-2009), Mawae began his career with the Seattle and then played with the Jets before landing in Nashville in 2006. Mawae made eight All-Pro teams as well as eight Pro Bowls through 241 games and is one of four offensive linemen to make it to the round of 15 finalists.
