Tom Brady returned to Gillette Stadium on Sunday ahead of the Patriots’ season opener and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft had a special announcement waiting for him.
Kraft announced he is waiving the usual four-year waiting period for Brady to enter the team’s Hall of Fame during a halftime ceremony with Tom Brady and his family.
Brady will be officially inducted next summer on a date that lines up with No. 12’s six Super Bowl wins.
Brady who is a no doubt first round ballot Hall Of Famer will first be eligible for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2028, as that organization has a five-year waiting period.
