Agreed...on both the awesome and surprise Looking at Football Reference, his closest comps are Darrel Green and Roger Wehrli, neither of whom have received the invitation to a gold jacket. In any case, great players as well...but nowhere near Champ Bailey.Awesome! A little surprising, to be honest
Aside from Brady, I’m not sure the team will retire another number. The Patriots Hall of Fame seems to the preferred way for former players/contributors to be recognized.I know it takes a lot, as it should, to retire an NFL number, but sould we consider retiring #24?
Correct and pretty good memory. Vinatieri was 27/53 (50.9%) in his college career at South Dakota State. He spent the first several months of 1996 as placekicker and punter for the Amsterdam Admirals where he went 9/10 on FGs. He will get his own place in Canton as a member of the class of '96 (albeit undrafted).And Vinatieri was undrafted in 96, though I believe he was eligible in 95 and nobody signed him because he was like a 50% fg kicker in college.
