|Jim Hudelson | USA TODAY Sports|
The 2018 Pro Football Hall of Fame nominees have been narrowed down to 15 finalists, and a few former Patriots made the cut.
Cornerback Ty Law in in his second year in a row as a finalist. He spent ten seasons with the New England Patriots. While with the team, he won three Super Bowls and accumulated 36 of his 53 career interceptions. Law’s career stats also include 838 tackles.
Wide receiver Randy Moss is in his first year of eligibility. He came to New England before the 2007 season – a year in which he scored an NFL-record 23 touchdowns. Moss helped the Patriots go undefeated in the regular season with a Super Bowl appearance that year. Moss’ career stats include 982 receptions, 15,292 yards and 156 touchdowns.
Safety John Lynch was only in New England for a few weeks in the summer of 2008, but he still counts as a former Patriot in the mix of finalists.
The full list includes Tony Boselli, Isaac Bruce, Brian Dawkins, Alan Faneca, Steve Hutchinson, Joe Jacoby, Edgerrin James, Ty Law, Ray Lewis, John Lynch, Kevin Mawae, Randy Moss, Terrell Owens, Brian Urlacher and Everson Walls.
The 2018 Hall of Fame class will be announced the night before the Super Bowl, on Feb. 3.
