Patriots to honor Tom Brady at home opener

Former New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady

The New England Patriots will honor Tom Brady at the team’s 2023 home opener, owner Bob Kraft said Thursday.

The Patriots will host Super Bowl LVII runner-up Philadelphia Eagles on Sept. 10 in the season opener.

“I invited him back to be with us at the opening game and let the fans in New England thank him. … It will be the beginning of many celebrations to honor Tom Brady,” Kraft said on NFL Network.

Brady, who played his first 20 seasons and captured six Super Bowl championships with the Patriots, announced his retirement after the 2022 season.

“He’s very excited to come back and see our fans,” Kraft said. “It will be a great, great celebration.”

A three-time league MVP, Brady set NFL records for wins by a quarterback (251), Super Bowl wins (seven), passing yards (89,214) and passing touchdowns (649) during a 23-year career with the Patriots (2000-19) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2020-22).

Brady, 45, is scheduled to join the Fox Sports broadcast booth in the fall of 2024.
