Kevin Faulk wore a Tom Brady jersey at this year’s NFL Draft so the quarterback returned the favor on Monday at Faulk’s induction to the Patriots Hall of Fame.
This spring Kevin Faulk was in Chicago to announce the Patriots third-round pick, after the team forfeited its first-round pick as part of New England’s Deflategate punishment. As a show of support to quarterback Tom Brady, Faulk wore a No. 12 jersey to the event.
On Monday, Faulk was being inducted into the Patriots Hall of Fame in Foxboro, when Brady showed up as a surprise visitor and returned the favor by donning Faulk’s No. 33.
Brady told the crowd he felt a lot faster while wearing his old teammate's jersey. He called the retired back “one of the great ones” and applauded the 40-year-old for his commitment to the New England franchise
Faulk spent his entire career with the Patriots after being drafted by the team in 1999 and caught 10 of his 15 career receiving touchdowns from Brady.
