Patriots Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft has inducted the franchise’s original owner, Billy Sullivan, into the Patriots Hall of Fame as a contributor, according to Patriots.com
Sullivan is the first contributor to be inducted into the Hall of Fame, which was previously comprised of 13 players, with a 14th to be selected by fans in 2009.
Reaction: This is a nice gesture by Kraft. Sullivan never made the Patriots a winner, but he was the original owner when the Pats were in the AFL, so it’s nice to see his efforts are being recognized today.
