ESPN NFL analyst and former All-Pro Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi will be honored by his former team at halftime of the Jets at Patriots MNF game on Dec. 6. Bruschi’s 189 regular-season games played are the most by a Patriots linebacker.

“I’m very excited about it. I’m not sure what emotions I’m going to experience. It’s a whole new experience for me to go out on the field with my family and not be in a helmet and shoulder pads.

That was my goal coming out of college and going into the league…I look forward to the opportunity for thanking the fans somewhat in person for all of the support they gave me throughout my entire career.
