New England Patriot All Time Leading Receiver Troy Brown To Be Inducted Into the Patriots Hall of Fame
Former New England Patriot wide receiver Troy Brown will become the 19th member of the Patriots Hall of Fame Saturday, September 15 during a public induction ceremony. The Patriot legend was voted in by fans in June, and since the new process for induction was started in 2007, earned the highest percentage of votes for any candidate.
Just last weekend Wes Welker tied Troy Brown for the all-time Patriots record for receptions. Welker, will more than likely break it Sunday, and later this season move past Brown’s second-place mark for career receiving yards. However, it’s Brown and his legacy that will remain in New England fans’ hearts.
Brown spent his entire 15-year career with the Patriots. He retired in 2007. He went from an eighth-round draft pick in 1993 to being cut in training camp cut in 1994 to winning three-time Super Bowl championships. He played key roles in New England’s runs to the Super Bowl. He caught passes, returned punts and even played some secondary. Only Steve Grogan (16) played more seasons with the Patriots.
