  • NASHVILLE — The Tennessee Titans are gearing up for the NFL draft and that includes head coach Mike Vrabel, but in the meantime, Vrabel was nominated and has been named a finalist for the New England Patriots' Hall of Fame. Out of 23 nominees, Vrabel been selected to be one of the finalists. 

    Vrabel was chosen as a finalist along with former Patriots' head coach Bill Parcells and former Patriots' offensive lineman Logan Mankins. While quite the honor, it should be no surprise to see Vrabel be chosen after he had such a decorated career during his time in New England.

    Vrabel played in 125 games over the course of 8 seasons with the Patriots. Amazingly enough, Vrabel only missed three games during that time. Vrabel was also incredibly productive racking up 606 tackles and 48 sacks. Vrabel created a good amount of turnovers as well forcing 13 fumbles and intercepting 11 passes.

    To go along with his defensive production, Vrabel famously added value on the offensive side of the ball as well. Vrabel caught eight passes for eight touchdowns in his eight seasons in New England and he added two catches for two scores in the playoffs.

    Speaking of playoffs, Vrabel spent a lot of time playing in them with the Patriots. Vrabel won three Super Bowls in New England playing next to Tom Brady. It wasn't just team accolades though, Vrabel also made the pro bowl and first-team all-pro in 2007

    While Vrabel is certainly excited about being a finalist and seeing his fantastic playing career appreciated, he is certainly busy with his current responsibilities as Titans' head coach. While Vrabel prepares for the draft and the season to come, he will have to wait and see if he is selected out of the finalists.
