Former Patriots running back Kevin Faulk made a reference to Tom Brady at the NFL draft.
Former Patriots running back Kevin Faulk honored his old teammate Tom Brady at the NFL draft on Friday.
Faulk announced the Patriots’ third-round selection while wearing a Brady jersey, and prefaced the pick by saying “the New England Patriots and Tom Brady select.”
Brady has been embroiled in a battle with the league since last year, when he was suspended four games for his role in the Deflategate scandal. Brady’s suspension was overturned in a federal court last season, but an appeals court ruled in favor of the league earlier this month.
The NFL draft continues Saturday with Rounds 4–7.
