Catching up with Patriots All-time WR Troy Brown

The New England Patriots’ all-time leader in receptions, 15 year NFL veteran (all with New England) Troy Brown is a classy guy, and a tireless worker. Today, Brown is as an NFL analyst on Comcast SportsNet and resides in Huntington, W.Va. He was inducted into the Marshall University Hall of Fame in 2002.

Considered the single-most dangerous scoring threat in all of Division I-AA during his two seasons in Huntington, Brown led the Thundering Herd to back-to-back trips to the Division I-AA National Championship game, garnering the NCAA title in 1992. He had 139 receptions for 2,746 yards and 24 touchdowns in his career en route to earning First Team All-America honors his senior year.

Brown won three Super Bowls with the Patriots. A 2001 Pro Bowl selection, he served as the Pats’ team captain for five seasons. I recently had an exclusive with Brown on the day of his induction into the College Football Hall of Fame.

For part one of this interview, where Brown and I discuss the current Patriots receiving corps go here.
