As if Gillete Stadium won’t be electric enough, the Patriots will be honoring one of their unheralded players from their three-time Super Bowl championship teams. Tonight will be “Troy Brown Night,” as the Patriots will honor Brown with a halftime ceremony.
Brown played 15 seasons with the Patriots after he was drafted in the eighth round (198th overall) in the 1993 NFL Draft. He stands as the franchise’s all-time leading receiver with 557 career receptions and ranks second with 6,366 receiving yards. Aside from serving as a top receiver, Brown is the Patriots’ all-time leading punt returner, with franchise highs in returns (246) and yardage (2,570). Brown also served as a nickel back during the final nine games of the 2004 season and he recorded three interceptions.
