Steve Hutchinson is one of the best offensive linemen ever to play football but the former Vikings player will need to wait for his Hall of Fame nod.
The Minnesota Vikings have an amazing number of players who have been a part of their organization who have been enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame and that list will continue to grow as years go on.
Most likely, the next former Minnesota player to be enshrined will be guard Steve Hutchinson, who had his second opportunity for enshrinement after being a finalist for the Hall of Fame classes of 2018 and 2019.
Sadly, neither of those two years found Hutchinson getting the nod. He has faced some tough competition both those years, but hopefully, the third time will the be a charm for the former stud pass blocker and road grader.
However, there are still some great offensive linemen who didn’t make the cut this year. Steve Hutchinson has been a finalist twice with no induction, but there are offensive linemen who have waited longer.
Here are the individuals who make up the 2019 class who were announced at the NFL Honors ceremony and shared on the official website of the Pro Football Hall of Fame:
- Champ Bailey, cornerback
- Pat Bowlen, contributor
- Gil Brandt, contributor
- Tony Gonzalez, tight end
- Ty Law, cornerback
- Kevin Mawae, center
- Ed Reed, safety
- Johnny Robinson, safety
Congratulations have to go out to those who were included among the Pro Football Hall of Fame class of 2019 but it has to be a little disappointing to fans of the Minnesota Vikings that Steve Hutchinson was not included among them.
