Here's to you Troy Brown

So Troy Brown has retired, I for one am happy that he ended his career as a Patriot. He has done so much in a Patriots uniform and i look forward to when he is inducted into the Patriots Hall of Fame.

REMEMBER WHEN: He lateraled to Antwaan Harris, who ran it in for the score that put the Patriots up, 21-3.

REMEMBER WHEN: In the AFC Championship game against the Steelers in January 2002, Brown's 55-yard punt return put the Patriots on the board
scoop and score
REMEMBER WHEN: In 2000, Brown earned a role as a starting wideout for the first time in his career. He started 15 games, hauling in 83 passes for 944 yards and 4 TDs and was still a threat in the return game

REMEMBER WHEN: Brown was the Patriots' leading receiver in Super Bowl XXXVI, catching 6 passes for 89 yards in addition to setting up Adam Vinatieri's winning field goal with this reception of a Tom Brady pass in the fourth quarter.

REMEMBER WHEN: The 33-year-old Brown's role changed in the 2004 season. With Ty Law and Tyrone Poole out for the year, and Eugene Wilson (right) battling injuries, the New England secondary was in disarray. So, Brown became a valued defensive back.

"I would give anything in the world to be able to put those pads on again and do it and I probably had the opportunity to do it, but it just wasn't the right color. I didn't think I could be in green and white."
