There are three players up for selection, including two key players of the Patriots 2001-04 dynasty.
CB Raymond Clayborn (1977-89) was a three-time Pro Bowler and finished his career as the Patriots franchise record holder with 36 interceptions. He has been a finalist for four straight years (2014-17). Coincidentally, Clayborn’s final season was under head coach Bill Belichick in 1991 with the Cleveland Browns.
DL Richard Seymour (2001-08) was a three-time First Team All Pro (2003-05) and one-time Second Team All Pro (2006) in New England, a five-time Pro Bowler (2002-06), and four-time team captain. He is a part of the 2000s All Decade Team. This is Seymour’s first year of eligibility.
LB Mike Vrabel (2001-08) was a one-time First Team All Pro and Pro Bowler in 2007, but he started 127 games in the Patriots defense as both a edge defender and off-the-ball linebacker. He also caught 10 touchdown passes on 10 receptions at tight end and his 48 sacks rank 4th in franchise history. Vrabel was also a finalist in 2016 with Clayborn, but lost to RB Kevin Faulk.
