5 former Chiefs named as Hall of Fame semifinalists

Kansas City has two Senior candidates and three Contributor candidates in the Canton balloting.

Kansas City Chiefs Otis Taylor, Super Bowl I Set Number: X12151

On Wednesday, the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio announced the names of 60 Senior and Coach/Contributor candidates being considered for the 2024 class.

Five former Kansas City Chiefs are included. Wide receiver Otis Taylor (1965-1975) and cornerback Albert Lewis (1983-1993) are among 31 Senior candidates. Head coach Marty Schottenheimer (1989-1998), general manager Carl Peterson (1989-2008) and scout Lloyd Wells (1963-1974) are among 29 Coach/Contributor semifinalists.

Two committees will pare each of the lists to 12 finalists before July 27. In late August, the committees will select three Senior candidates and one Coach/Contributor candidate to be passed on to the full Hall of Fame committee. After the first of the year, that group will consider those four individuals (along with 15 modern-era players) for induction in the 2024 class.
