FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Many of the Patriots three-time Super Bowl champions are back in town this weekend for a special 10-year reunion that will include a panel discussion featuring former Patriots DL Richard Seymour and a couple of his teammates at The Hall at Patriot Place presented by Raytheon on Saturday, Nov. 1, from 5-6 p.m.
Fans can attend Saturday's panel discussion in the Grand Hall by purchasing an admission ticket to The Hall at Patriot Place. Tickets are $10 for adults, $7 for seniors and $5 for children ages 5-12. Tickets can be purchased online at www.thehallatpatriotplace.com or at the door. Please note there will be no autographs at Saturday's event.
In honor of the 10th Anniversary of the 3x Super Bowl Championships, check out photos from the 22 players that were a members of all three teams.
A first-round pick (sixth overall) in the 2001 NFL Draft, Seymour played eight seasons with the Patriots (2001-2008) and an additional four seasons with the Oakland Raiders (2009-2012). He is a seven-time Pro Bowl and five-time All-Pro selection. When the Patriots defeated the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl XXXIX at the end of the 2004 season, Seymour became one of 22 Patriots players to earn a third Super Bowl title in four years (2001-2004) and the Patriots became just the second team in the Super Bowl era (1966-present) to accomplish the feat and the only franchise to do so in the salary cap era (1994-present). Seymour also joined an exclusive group of players to claim back-to-back world championships, which has been done only eight times in NFL history.
This season marks the 10th anniversary of the Patriots third Super Bowl championship. On Sunday, the Patriots will honor 17 players who captured three Patriots' Super Bowl championships during halftime of the team's game vs. the Broncos at Gillette Stadium. Three of the players expected to return to Gillette Stadium for the halftime ceremony are also the last three players inducted into the Patriots Hall of Fame: Troy Brown (2012), Tedy Bruschi (2013) and Ty Law (2014).
Patriots QB Tom Brady and Indianapolis Colts K Adam Vinatieri are still playing. The only other former players unable to attend the halftime ceremony are currently coaching. Larry Izzo (New York Giants) and Mike Vrabel (Houston Texans) are currently assistant coaches in the NFL and Adrian Klemm is an assistant coach at UCLA.
Of the five players who will not be able to attend Sunday's halftime ceremony, only Patriots QB Tom Brady and Indianapolis Colts K Adam Vinatieri are still playing. Larry Izzo (New York Giants), Mike Vrabel (Houston Texans) and Adrian Klemm (UCLA) are currently on coaching staffs.
