Watch Robert Kraft Break Patriots Hall Of Fame News To NFL Icon Mike Vrabel
New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft had the honor to give Mike Vrabel the best Hall of Fame news and the NFL icon couldn’t hide his excitement. It was a great Zoom call and both sides enjoyed it.
Vrabel will be the newest member of the team’s Hall of Fame. The former linebacker made history with his performance from 2001 to 2008 and this reward didn’t come as a surprise. Bill Parcells and Kevin Faulk weren’t that lucky this time. Vrabel was a finalist in the last six years and he is officially the 34th inductee. A great honor for the brilliant football player.
Kraft thanked Vrabel for everything he has accomplished over the years. He was a real role model for younger generations, a football player with great skills and even greater personality.
“I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all the great contributions you’ve made to our franchise,” the Patriots owner told Vrabel in a video shared by the organization. “You played, and were a heart and soul, of the greatest period, I think, of any team in the history of the NFL. And you had a good heart and soul, and a great team guy. So, I wanted to thank you for that.”
Kraft expected to organize the Hall of Fame induction ceremony for Vrabel in a few months
Vrabel did admit that he worked with an exceptional group of people, great contributors and winners. They made great memories back then and Vrabel will always remember his time with the Patriots.
“We had a great group of people … those were some of the best years of my life.”

The Patriots have yet to confirm the date for Vrabel’s induction ceremony. He is a busy man and the Titans are getting ready for the new season and Vrabel has a lot of tasks on his desks. Sources believe that the Patriots will wait until training camp to organize the big event.
The Patriots are busy, too. They had a disappointing season and now they are trying to reshape the roster and avoid another disaster.
