The New England Patriots are in the midst of an induction ceremony for three-time Super Bowl champion and franchise leader in total yards running back Kevin Faulk. Faulk made headlines when he rocked a Tom Brady jersey during the NFL Draft and many thought that act helped him win the fan vote to make the Hall.
Well, he’s doing it again. Faulk is wearing a Tom Brady jersey as he joins the team Hall of Fame.
Faulk took the jersey off when he received his red jacket that symbolizes his entry into the Hall.
Faulk has thanked almost every single player and coach that he played with during his 13-year career in New England. He has given special thanks to Tom Brady, Ty Law, Tedy Bruschi, Randy Moss, Corey Dillon and dozens of other teammates.
Faulk also thanked the coaching staff and highlighted how offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia stayed after practice every single night to help him with blitz pick-up.
Head coach Bill Belichick even showed up to the ceremony with a smile:
Faulk said that Belichick called him every time the team made a transaction to acquire a running back, whether it was drafting Patrick Pass or trading for Corey Dillon. He expressed a deep appreciation for that respect.
Congratulations to Kevin Faulk!
EDIT: Tom Brady made a surprise visit and speech! What a great afternoon.
