The New England Patriots have announced the three Finalists for their Hall of Fame and all three of them were members of the organization’s first three Super Bowls.
Matt Light is a first time nominee. The former Left Tackle played 153 Games in the NFL and started all of them in a career that was spent only in New England (2001-11). The former Purdue Boilermaker was a second round pick and was chosen for three Pro Bowls.
Richard Seymour is being nominated for the second time. Seymour played for New England from 2001 to 2008 and as a Patriot he was named to five straight Pro Bowls (2002-06) and three straight First Team All Pro squads (2003-05).
Mike Vrabel is a nominee for the third time. Vrabel played 125 (starting 110) for the Pats at Linebacker and was a Pro Bowl and First Team All Pro in 2007.

One of our favorite franchise Halls of Fame has announced their latest inductee.
Former Offensive Tackle, Matt Light has been chosen via a fan vote to be the 27th member of the New England Patriots Hall of Fame.
Light was drafted in the Second Round in 2001 out of Purdue and he would quickly take over the starting Left Tackle role for the Pats. Light would play 155 Games for New England and started in 153 of them. Three times (2006, 2007 & 2010) Light was named to the Pro Bowl and he was chosen as a First Team All Pro in 2007.
He becomes the fourth player after Kevin Faulk, Troy Brown and Tedy Bruschi to enter the Patriots Hall of Fame with three Super Bowl Rings.
Light’s induction ceremony will be held on September 29th at the NRG Plaza.
We here would like to congratulate Matt Light on receiving this prestigious honor.
