Law honored by Kraft, hopes to sign one-day deal with Pats

Ty Law's playing career is all but done. But the former Pro Bowl cornerback has his eye on one more contract with the New England Patriots ... even if it's just for a day.

"... That's one of the reasons I haven't officially turned my papers in because I would like to at least say the last contract I sign was with New England," said Law, according to The Boston Globe. "And that would be an honor if I was able to do that, if Mr. Kraft was to bless me with something like that, that would be the icing on the cake for a 15-year career."

Law played 10 of his 15 seasons with the Patriots and was among a group of players honored Tuesday night at The Sports Museum's 10th annual The Tradition Awards in Boston. Patriots owner Robert Kraft presented Law with the football legacy award.

Law, a five-time Pro Bowler, played with four teams in his career but will always be associated with the Patriots, the team he won three Super Bowl rings with. The 37-year-old told the Globe he had the opportunity to play with a team last season, but decided it "wasn't the right time."

"I said, 'It's time to call it a career.' But hopefully, I'll get the opportunity to officially retire as a Patriot. That's my ultimate goal right now," he said.

Whether Law gets his wish remains to be seen. The Patriots aren't known to get involved with one-day contract celebrations, and Kraft didn't give an answer, choosing instead to heap praise on one of his personal favorites.

"To me, he is a Patriot and will always be a Patriot," Kraft said. "... He anchored our backfield. People don't realize part of the privilege of owning a team is you get to meet with great guys, and Ty has always been one of my favorites."
