Willie McGinest to serve as Patriots honorary captain for AFC Championship Game
McGinest was a cornerstone of New England’s Super Bowl titles in 2001, 2003 and 2004, after being selected by the Patriots in the first round of the 1994 NFL Draft out of Southern California. He has the honor of being the first draft pick following the purchase of the team by Robert Kraft. McGinest played 11 of his 15 NFL seasons with the Patriots, seeing action in 18 playoff games, four AFC Championship games and four Super Bowls. McGinest eclipsed two NFL postseason records during his time with the Patriots – most sacks in a game with 4.5 in a Wild Card game vs. Jacksonville and career postseason sacks with 16.
