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."
