FOXBORO – In voting by New England fans, former safety Rodney Harrison was chosen to become the 29th player inducted into the Patriots’ Hall of Fame.
Harrison played the last six seasons (2003-08) of his 15-year NFL career with the Patriots, helping them finish the 2003 and 2004 campaigns with back-to-back Super Bowl wins.
In Super Bowl XXXIX, his fourth-quarter interception ended Philadelphia’s final drive and clinched a 24-21 victory against the Eagles.
The hard-hitting Harrison registered 441 tackles, nine sacks and eight interceptions in 63 games for New England.
Before joining the Patriots, the two-time first-team All-Pro tallied 756 tackles, 21 1/2 sacks and 26 picks in 123 games with the San Diego Chargers from 1994-2002.
Harrison joins offensive tackle Leon Gray, selected by a 10-person senior selection committee in April, as the 2019 honorees. The date and time for the ceremony will be announced later.
