BOSTON (CBS) — Kevin Faulk will take his place in The Hall at Patriot Place early Monday evening, solidifying his spot in the franchise’s storied history.
Faulk joins his former teammates and fellow three-time Super Bowl champions Troy Brown, Tedy Bruschi, Ty Law and Willie McGinest (among others) in the team’s Hall of Fame, and spoke of the honor earlier Monday with Scott Zolak and Dan Roche (in for Marc Bertrand) on 98.5 The Sports Hub.READ MORE: 3 Captured After Stolen Car Filled With Stolen Packages Crashes In Holbrook
“All of them names you just said, that’s why this honor is so good. Playing with those guys and understanding what those guys meant to this organization and what the organization meant to those guys. The honor is tremendous,” said Faulk.

He had a quick message for New England fans as well.
“Thank you for all the support, and watching me grow up,” he said, “not as a football player but as a young man.”
Faulk shared a number of stories from his 13-year career in New England, from what he learned under Bill Belichick and what he learned about the game off the field from owner Robert Kraft. He also touched on wearing Tom Brady’s jersey when announcing the Patriots’ second-round pick in April, and his thoughts on the 2016 Patriots team:MORE NEWS: Eddie Mekka, 'Laverne & Shirley' Actor And Worcester Native, Dies At 69
