Seymour, Vrabel, Light Tabbed As Finalists For 2018 Pats Hall Induction
The finalists for the New England Patriots' 2018 team Hall of Fame induction have been announced.
Offensive tackle Matt Light, defensive end Richard Seymour and linebacker Mike Vrabel have all been pegged as the next potential inductee of the franchise's Hall of Fame.
All three players won three Super Bowls with the team (2001, 2003 and 2004).
On the final ballot for the third consecutive year, Vrabel, now the head coach of the Tennessee Titans, played eight of his 14 NFL seasons in New England. He totaled 411 tackles and 48 sacks, while with the Pats. The outside linebacker also made an impact on offense in New England, working as a tight end near the goal line. Vrabel caught 10 passes with the Pats, all for touchdowns, including two in Super Bowl play.
Seymour is on the finalist list for the second straight year, after enjoying eight dominant years in New England. In 111 games with the Pats, the defensive end recorded 223 total tackles and 39 sacks. He also made the Pro Bowl in five consecutive seasons, while being named an All-Pro three consecutive times.
Light, who is the newcomer to the finalist list, also had an extremely productive tenure in New England. The only one of the trio to spend his entire career in New England, Light proved to be a key cog in the offensive line throughout his time with the team. Working at the ultra important left tackle position, Light helped to keep quarterback Tom Brady upright and clean through the majority of his 155 games.
