Offensive lineman Matt Light, defensive lineman Richard Seymour and linebacker Mike Vrabel, three cornerstones of the Patriots' first three Super Bowl title teams, are this year's finalists for induction into the team's Hall of Fame.
Fans can vote for one of the three to be this year's inductee at patriots.com/2018hof through May 14. The Patriots will announce the selection that week.
Light is a first-time finalist, Seymour a finalist for the second year in a row and Vrabel for the third year in a row. The enshrinement ceremony for the 27th inductee into the Hall at Patriot Place in Foxboro will be held this summer outside the Hall at a date and time to be announced.

Light spent his entire 11-year career with the Patriots, anchored the offensive line at left tackle and protected Tom Brady’s blind side for more than a decade. The three-time Pro Bowl selection joined Brady (8), Cornelius Bennett, John Elway and Charles Haley as the only players to start in at least five Super Bowls.
Seymour spent the first eight seasons of his 12-year NFL career with the Patriots. He was named to five consecutive Pro Bowls with the Patriots (2002-06) and was a four-time first team All-Pro.
Vrabel, named coach of the Houston Texans this offseason, joined the Patriots as a free agent in 2001 and played eight years in New England. He started at inside and outside linebacker and regularly lined up on offense in short-yardage and goal-line situations, catching 10 passes, including touchdowns receptions in two Super Bowl victories.
