Samsonite Make Your Case: Old-Timers Day
The Patriots recently announced the finalists for this year’s Hall of Fame class with Ty Law, Raymond Clayborn and Bill Parcells earning the nomination. Law would be considered the overwhelming favorite, as many of his contemporaries from those championship teams of the early-2000s will no doubt benefit from their success.
But even though Law is a most-worthy candidate, the fact that the team did not enjoy tremendous success prior to 1994 when Robert Kraft bought the franchise doesn't mean there weren't great players before then. With Clayborn earning a nomination this year, he joins former teammates Leon Gray and Fred Marion among those who have been named finalists. Houston Antwine, a defensive lineman who played in the 1960s, also has been nominated in the past.
Before we delve deeper into draft debates in the coming weeks we thought the time was right to take a look at some of those candidates from days gone by and our Samsonite Make Your Case question asks: Which pre-Kraft Era Patriot is most deserving of making the Patriots Hall of Fame?
