Matt Light spent his entire 11-year career with the Patriots and played a major role in leading the Patriots to 11 consecutive winning seasons, including nine division championships, five conference titles and three Super Bowls titles. Light was drafted in the second round (48th overall) of the 2001 NFL Draft out of Purdue and anchored the offensive line at left tackle while protecting Tom Brady’s blind side for more than a decade. He joined Brady (eight), Cornelius Bennett, John Elway and Charles Haley as the only other players to start in at least five Super Bowls. Light joins Kevin Faulk (2016), Tedy Bruschi (2013) and Troy Brown (2012) as the fourth player to enter The Hall as a career Patriot with three Super Bowl rings.
