Talking about Titans Hall of Famers is a bit of tricky subject. The team's only been around since 1997, after (rather unceremoniously) moving from Houston and rebranding from the Oilers to the Titans.

The list of Titans Hall of Famers is, uh, brief. The list of Oilers Hall of Famers is a little less so. But it's hard separate the two team's history, despite the fact that there's only one Hall of Famer who played for both.

So here's the full list of Titans – not Oilers – Hall of Famers. Sorry, Houston – but you have CJ Stroud now, so you'll be fine.

Which members of the Titans are in the Pro Football Hall of Fame?




Steve Hutchinson



Andre Johnson



Bruce Matthews



Kevin Mawae



Randy Moss



Andre Johnson being on the official Hall of Fame website under 'Titans' stings just a little.

The good news for Titans fans is that there's a list of guys that could find themselves in Canton in the next few years, and even a few of those guys actually making it would give the team a much larger presence of original guys, not just players who stopped through Nashville at some point (cough Randy Moss cough).

Current and former Titans players who could make the Hall of Fame next

Eddie George

You know George is close because he was just recently (2024) named a semi-finalist for the Hall of Fame. He's still the career rushing yards leader for the Titans (10,009), and the only running back in NFL history to record 300 or more carries for eight consecutive seasons.

He didn't miss a single game while he played for the Titans, made four Pro Bowls, and eclipsed 1,000 rushing yards seven different times. He'll get there eventually.

Steve McNair

He's already in the Titans' Hall of Fame, so it's a good start. He's had his number retired by the team, won a (co) MVP in 2003, and made three Pro Bowls from 2000-2005. If elected, he'd be one of the few representatives of both the Oilers and Titans. He finished his career with over 31,000 passing yards, 174 passing touchdowns, and a 60% completion percentage.

Unlike George, however, he's yet to make it to the semifinals of HOF voting – it'll be an uphill climb.

Derrick Henry

Henry feels like the modern day leader in the clubhouse.

In his eight-year career with the Titans, Henry put up 9502 rushing yards and 90 touchdowns in 119 games. He's made four Pro Bowls, multiple All-Pro teams, and was named Offensive Player of the Year in 2020. He's about as synonymous with the Titans as any player who's ever been in that organization, and he will absolutely have his jersey retired in Nashville when it's all said and done. The threshold for running backs making the Hall is incredibly tough, especially as teams have remodeled their approach to the position over the last decade or so. He has a fascinating candidacy, though, and it'll be interesting to see how voters approach his bodywork compared to the era he played in.

DeAndre Hopkins

Hopkins going into the Hall of Fame after spending the vast majority of his career with the team that replaced the Oilers in Houston would be a ... fun? weird? ... twist on the Titans' history.

The people who study Hall of Fame candidacies seem to think that Hopkins is still on the outside looking in, but right on the edge. Pro Football Reference's number crunchers also think he's not going to make it: Hopkins' "Hall of Fame Monitor" is right at 71, while the average number for WRs in the Hall is up over 100. He is coming off a season with 75 catches and over 1,000 yards, though, and still has a few good seasons left.

If Will Levis is actually a Dude, and Brian Callahan can bring a Bengals-like passing offense to Tennessee with him, maybe Hopkins sees a bit of a late-career resurgence and sneaks in.
