Andre Tippett, John Hannah and Michael Haynes all own sharp red Patriots Hall of Fame jackets. Gold will be their color of choice on Oct. 22 when the trio is honored at halftime of the Patriots-Falcons Sunday Night Football game. Donning their gold Pro Football Hall of Fame attire, the three legends will receive their new Pro Football Hall of Fame rings.
But starting Wednesday, Oct. 18, their Pro Football Hall of Fame busts — typically available to view only in Canton, Ohio, will be on display at The Hall at Patriot Place presented by Raytheon.
Weighing more than 40 pounds each, the bronze Pro Football Hall of Fame busts are a spectacle. For those who have never had a chance to visit Canton, this is a terrific opportunity to see the busts right here in Foxborough. The three bronze statues will also be on the field at halftime on Sunday night.
Tippett and Hannah are the only two Pro Football Hall of Famers that spent their entire careers with the Patriots. Haynes was drafted by New England and spent seven seasons with the Patriotss before moving on to the Raiders, with whom he won a pair of Super Bowls. The busts will arrive on Oct. 18 and be on display through Oct. 21.
