Bledsoe inducted into Patriots' Hall of Fame

He will never be in the Cowboys' Ring of Honor, but ex-Cowboy Drew Bledsoe is the Patriots' newest inductee into their Hall of Fame. Bledsoe, the No.1 overall pick of the Patriots in 1993, spent the first nine years of his career in New England before being injured and replaced by Tom Brady. (The rest, as they say, is history.) Bledsoe finished his career in Dallas in 2005-06, replaced by Tony Romo six games into the 2006 season.

Bledsoe learned of the honor Monday morning. The Patriots will induct him in September.

"Obviously, this is a tremendous honor, to be elected to the Patriots Hall of Fame," Bledsoe said. "It was a little overwhelming this morning to receive the call from Mr. [Robert] Kraft –- honestly a little more emotional than I thought it would have been. Just to be considered in the company of Bill Parcells and Houston Antwine was a great honor in and of itself. And then to be elected to the hall of fame was really a tremendous honor. I’m really looking forward to getting back there in September and [it is] obviously a great honor. It means a lot to me and a lot to my family."

Bledsoe said he has not talked to Parcells since leaving the Cowboys in 2006, Bledsoe's last year in the NFL.

Permettez-moi de commencer par dire post merveilleux. Je ne suis pas certaine si elle en a déjà parlé, mais lorsque vous utilisez Chrome je ne peux en aucun cas obtenir l'intégralité du site à la charge avec des rafraîchissante à quelques reprises. Peuvent être tout simplement mon ordinateur. Merci.
