One of three former New England Patriots teammates will be claiming a spot in the team’s Hall of Fame.

Rodney Harrison, Mike Vrabel, and Richard Seymour are this year’s finalists for the honor. The team announced the trio on Tuesday morning.

All three played together in New England from 2003 through 2008, winning a pair of Super Bowls. Vrabel and Seymour were teammates on the 2001 Super Bowl-winning team.

2019 marks Vrabel’s fourth year as a finalist. Seymour has been nominated for the honor three times. Harrison’s name appears on the list for the first time.

Fans can cast votes on the winner through May 3. One of them will join Leon Gray, who was recently selected by a 10-person senior committee, as the two members of this year’s class.

  1. Out of respect for the fact Seymour was drafted by the Pats, I have to go with Seymour. Vrabel is probably in line next, with Rodney still a ways out, mainly because he only played 6 seasons in NE.

    If Vrabel is going to go in, at some point, Ninkovich needs to go in as well. Nink played as many years as Vrabel did in NE and has the numbers and hardware to rival what Vrabel did, IN some ways, during the rebuild and rule changes on offense, Nink’s career is more impressive than Vrabel’s.

  2. they are all deserving – 3 excellent candidates but you can only vote for one. I voted for Rodney Harrison but would not be upset with any of these as the winner

  3. Seymour. They are all deserving and will likely make it some day. Pat’s HOF is a well done place, worth a visit.

    When will The Deflator be eligible?


    When you get your GED.


    Enjoy! The Easter Bunny comes soon, little guy!

  5. All three of them will get in eventually but I have to go with Seymour. It didn’t end well when he left for Oakland, but he is the best defensive lineman to ever play here. I attended his first training camp (back at Bryant when you could stand 10 yards from the drills) and his body type, quickness and explosion were far above any of the other 11 linemen in that camp. Seymour didn’t do it with stats. He did it with tying up doubles, wrecking interiors and could school guys one on one. Could go outside in the 3-4 or inside in the 4-3 with his versatility. Put him in!!!

  6. Can someone explain to me why Mike Vrabel would be considered a Hall of Famer? Because he seemed like a slightly above-average linebacker that occasionally caught some touchdowns.

    Seymour was a beast, but I’m not sure if I’d consider him one of the all-time greats.

    Harrison, while talented, is an admitted cheater (HGH) and well known dirty player.

    Never mind, realized this was for the “team” hall of fame, not the real one. Sure put them all in, who cares. Seymour is a hall of famer hes a complete player unlike Jason meaningless sack Taylor also Harrison is one of the only 30/30 sacks int members in NFL history you don’t know squat.

  8. Do they even have a ring of fame in Gillette stadium? Or are they saving that for Bill and Tom?

  9. Not only is it Seymour for the Pats, he’s got a shot at the NFL HOF. 7 Pro Bowls. 5x All Pros

    Which ones didn’t cheat is the question
    You live in make-believe land—why don’t you enlighten us?

    Oh, what’s that? You got nothing? You mean, it turns out they’re just winners and you don’t like it because it came at the expense of your team a lot??

    That’s what we thought.

  11. The problem is they were all great players, and all 3 deserve to get in. Harrison was a heavy hitter who brought an attitude to the defense.
    Vrabel was not only a monster on the field, he was also a coach. Don’t forget that the Patriots used Vrabel on offense also. Vrabel had 8 passes thrown to him that resulted in 8 TOUCHDOWNS!!! That is a sick stat.
    It’s difficult but if I had to choose one, Seymour gets my vote. He wrecked havoc on the line even while getting double teamed and offenses had to specifically game plan for him.
