Ty Law was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this summer, marking the first inclusion in Canton for the Patriots dynasty of the 2000s.
But are we on the verge of seeing more and more former Pats getting into the Hall of Fame?
Six former Patriots are up for nomination for the Hall of Fame in 2020, as announced on Friday:
Rodney Harrison, Corey Dillon, Willie McGinest, Tedy Bruschi, Richard Seymour and Ben Coates are all up for induction. There will be more and more rounds to whittle down the finalists.
Seymour finished as a finalist last year.
