Maxie Baughan and Al Wistert, members of the Eagles Hall of Fame, are part of the 12 semifinalists for the 2024 Pro Football Hall of Fame Seniors category. Up to three candidates in the Seniors category will be selected for final consideration in late August. Each of the 12 semifinalists played his last game in professional football no later than the 1998 season.
Maxie Baughan earned five Pro Bowl nods in six seasons with the Eagles between 1960-65. Baughan was selected with the 20th overall pick in the 1960 NFL Draft and was a member of the Eagles' championship team that same season. The linebacker collected 18 interceptions and 10 fumble recoveries during an illustrious 12-year career. Baughan was inducted into the Eagles Hall of Fame in 2015.
Known as "Big Ox," Al Wistert was a dominant force on the offensive and defensive lines. During his nine-year career in Philadelphia, Wistert received NFL All-Pro honors in all but one season. In 1948-49, he was a prominent member of the Eagles' back-to-back NFL Championship teams. He also played in the first-ever Pro Bowl in 1951. Wistert had his jersey No. 70 retired in 1952 and was inducted into the Eagles Hall of Fame in 2008.
