Patriots Hall of Fame committee to meet today—who could be getting the call?

The New England Patriots Hall of Fame committee is set to meet today.

The team Hall of Fame, while obviously distinct from the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, is still hallowed grounds for former Patriots and fans of all generations.

Some teams refer to their equivalent of a team hall of fame as a "Ring of Honor" or "Ring of Fame."

Last year, Matt Light, Mike Vrabel, and Richard Seymour were named as finalists.

Light was eventually selected as the 2018 Patriots Hall of Fame Inductee.

While a fan vote ultimately determines the inductee, the committee meeting begins the process of narrowing the 2019 field to the three finalists fans can vote on.

But who is in the running to get the nod? 

This year's rumored favorites look familiar. Seymour has been a finalist each of the last two years, while Vrabel has made the final three every year from 2016-2018.

Vrabel played linebacker for the Patriots from 2001-2008, during which time the Patriots made it to four Super Bowls, winning three.

Seymour meanwhile, who was the Patriots' first draft pick in 2001 at #6 overall, played defensive tackle for the team, also from 2001-2008.

Patrick Mahomes' girlfriend says she was harassed by fans during Patriots-Chiefs

Patrick Mahomes' girlfriend says she was harassed by fans during Patriots-Chiefs

New England Patriots fans apparently weren't all that hospitable to Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes' girlfriend Brittany Matthews and brother Jackson Mahomes on Sunday.

Matthews live-tweeted her experience at Gillette Stadium during the Patriots-Chiefs matchup, and other than the game's outcome it doesn't seem like it was pleasant.

Matthews claims Patriots fans yelled at her and Jackson to sit down and Gillette security even stepped in to move them to a safer location.

So what’s the skinny with the Patriots having a videographer’s tape confiscated in Cleveland?

Here’s what we know: Kraft Sports Productions, which produces content for Patriots.com, does a “Do Your Job” series in which they track various team personnel at work. 

This particular episode was supposed to feature an advanced scout. So the videographer — in a move that probably lacked foresight — was filming the scout when the Cleveland Browns hosted the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. 

The footage is aimed at showing the inner workings of what the scout does, but in no way was it a reprise of the sideline videotaping the Patriots were found guilty of engaging in back in 2007. 

Some called that “Spygate.”

The NFL has reportedly confiscated the tape from Sunday. The Browns were alerted because it was their press box. The Bengals were not.
