Rodney Harrison is inducted in the Patriots Hall of Fame

New England- Former New England Patriots safety Rodney Harrison has been inducted in the Patriots Hall of Fame. Harrison was known as a hard-hitting safety that made big-time plays when it counted.

After his nine years in San Diego as a Charger, he took his talent to another level with going to New England. In his first two seasons with the Patriots, he was the leading tackler and made All-Pro, but that was just one dimension that he brought to the table. His skill set with being in the right place at the right time was unbearable for offenses.

“When I came over here to the Patriots, the thing that I loved about Coach Bill Belichick was, we had purpose,” Harrison said. “Everything that we were doing, it had a purpose. It was just really good to get around a bunch of other people that really loved football.

During New England’s playoff run in 2004-2005, Harrison had seven picks in nine games and broke the hearts of Eagles’ fans in the Super Bowl, as he intercepted a pass that could have been a game-winning drive.

Harrison holds the NFL record for sacks by a defensive back (30.5) and is only second to Ray Lewis for having 30 sacks and 30 interceptions.
