This Sunday, the New England Patriots will honor 22 players, who earned three Super Bowl’s with the team. Of the 22 players, only 18 will be in attendance as the team honors the three-time champs on the 10th anniversary season of them winning the Super Bowl.
The players will be on scene at Gillette Stadium as the team faces off against the Denver Broncos. This will also be one of several opportunities that the team will honor the players.
“Collectively, these 22 players will always share a special bond,” said Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft. “While individual Super Bowl teams will certainly be celebrated in the future, these 22 players represent the greatest era in franchise history and one of the greatest accomplishments in NFL history.
“It is always fun to participate in reunions with former players. The stories they share from their playing days are always entertaining and it is always fun to see the ovations the players get from our fans. I look forward to seeing them and sharing those experiences with them.”
Only Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Indianapolis Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri are still play. Plus, Larry Izzo, Mike Vrabel, and Adrian Klemm are currently on coaching staffs with the New York Giants (Izzo), Houston Texans (Vrabel), and UCLA (Klemm).
The follow players will be honored at halftime on Sunday:
The team honors their past players and legends as part of the NFL’s Homecoming Initiative. Earlier this year, the team honored 2014 Hall of Fame Inductee Ty Law on Thursday Night Football against the New York Jets.
