Tom Brady makes emotional return to New England Patriots but Philadelphia Eagles didn’t get the memo

Tom Brady makes emotional return to New England Patriots but Philadelphia Eagles didn’t get the memo

In the 103-year history of the NFL,
nearly 27,000
players have appeared in games,
and we know the greatest one ever to play in that time is right here in Tom Brady.
Patriot fans didn’t give him a proper opportunity to wish him thank you.
So,
unfortunately,
I don’t think a halftime ceremony gives us enough time.
Tom Brady deserves more.
So to do so,
I’m going to waive the four-year wait period
and place Tom Brady in the Patriots Hall of Fame next spring.
For the first time ever,
we will host a Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Gillette Stadium.
For the man who led us to six Super Bowls and war number 12,
we are going to hold it in this stadium June 12,
24.
Tom,
there’s not enough time for me,
my family,
and all our fans
to express how much we want to say thank you to you.
So we look forward to doing it at that Hall of Fame ceremony June 12,
24.
And with that,
the greatest of all time.
Thank you.
Thank you,
guys.
What a day.
You know,
that run out was a little longer today than it used to be.
I’m not quite in game shape,
but it’s impossible for me to be in this stadium
full of you amazing fans,
with some of the best teammates,
with my family,
with all my friends,
and not run out like I did for 20 years.
This is an incredible celebration for me,
for our family,
for my teammates,
for all of us to come back and thank you guys for what you’ve done for us.
I was so fortunate to be drafted here two decades ago,
23 years to be exact,
not even knowing where New England was on the map.
And not that we put it on the map,
but I think a lot more people in the U.S.
know where the New England Patriots play.
Thank you,
RKK,
JK,
the Kraft family,
Coach Belichick,
all the staff,
the coaches,
my teammates,
you fans.
Nobody 23 years ago would imagine that this journey would bring us here today.
We had six championships.
We had countless memories in this stadium,
celebrating wins against great teams
in Foxborough weather like today,
where we loved,
loved seeing the opponents
come in and be a little worried about what the conditions were going to be like.
We dealt with whatever came our way.
We dealt with a lot of adversities,
and it toughened us up.
And we,
as a team,
represented you guys every time we took the field.
It’s one of my core beliefs.
There’s nothing significant in life that can be accomplished as an individual.
It’s always about the team.
We built a culture of teammates that cared about two things.
They cared about each other,
and they cared about winning.
Tom Brady,
Appreciation Day.
Festivities going on at halftime here in Foxborough.
We’re back with the start of the second half after this message and a word
from your local station,
and you’re watching the NFL on CBS,
the home of Super Bowl LIV.
