Former running back Kevin Faulk was announced on Wednesday afternoon as the newest member of the Patriots Hall of Fame.  Faulk will be inducted into the class of 2016 in a ceremony on August 1st.

Faulk won the fan vote to be named the sole entrant to the hall of fame for the Pats this off-season.  He beat out former teammates Mike Vrabel and Raymond Clayborn to earn the honor.  Faulk played 13 seasons in the NFL and helped New England to three Super Bowl victories.  The second round draft pick is the Pats' all-time leader in all-purpose yards with 12,349 and ranks fifth in rushing in team history with 3,607 yards on the ground.

Faulk endeared himself to Patriot fans during the NFL draft as he announced the team's first selection in 2016 wearing a Tom Brady jersey and giving the QB a shout-out.

New England will honor Faulk at the first home game of the season on September 18th, along with his official induction on August 1st.
