The Patriots Hall of Fame is reopening seven days per week and premiering new exhibits. The most notable addition to the hall is a display honoring the career of former Pats wide receiver Julian Edelman.

The Patriots originally drafted Edelman in the seventh round of the 2009 draft, and he went on to play 11 seasons in New England. Along the way, he won three Super Bowls and was named Super Bowl LIII MVP in the 2018 season. Edelman ranks second in franchise history in receptions (620) and fourth in receiving yards (6,822).

Following Edelman’s retirement in April 2021, Patriots owner Robert Kraft called him “one of the great success stories in our franchise’s history.”

In addition to the Edelman display, the Hall of Fame also has an exhibit for the All-Dynasty Team and an NFL Draft display, which features jerseys from Patriots draft picks, including Mac Jones.

The Patriots Hall of Fame is opening in full seven days a week beginning Monday, June 21.

The Patriots begin their 2021 regular season on Sept. 12, when they host the Miami Dolphins at Gillette Stadium in the first game of the post-Edelman era.
