The New England Patriots will induct former franchise left tackle Matt Light to the franchise Hall of Fame today – and the event gets live-streamed online. Light will become the 27th person in the team’s Hall of Fame today.
Light was the Patriots second round pick in 2001 and he held down the left tackle position for eleven seasons, winning nine division titles, five conference championships, and three Super Bowls. He was named First Team All Pro in 2007.
Patriots fans voted him into the Hall over fellow worthy-nominees Richard Seymour and Mike Vrabel.
Light now joins Drew Bledsoe (2011), Troy Brown (2012), Tedy Bruschi (2013), Ty Law (2014), Wilile McGinest (2015), and Kevin Faulk (2016) in the Hall as members of the Patriots early dynasty. Raymond Clayborn was the inductee for 2017.
