Tom Brady Hall of Fame Induction red carpet: List of celebrities attending star-studded event at Gillette Stadium

Tom Brady's induction into the Patriots Hall of Fame was a star-studded affair. The quarterback, who will be a first-ballot entry into Canton when the time comes, is widely regarded as the greatest of all time. And to pay their respects to him, some of the biggest names dropped by.

Unsurprisingly, the world of football and sports saw strong representation. Leading the charge was Drew Bledsoe, a Patriots Hall-of-Famer himself. The franchise quarterback for New England was replaced by Tom Brady after an injury and saw his career and legacy completely altered. But he was there to pay tribute to what his successor achieved.

Former teammates and players Randy Moss and Ben Watson were seen with Patriots owner Robert Kraft. Multiple Super Bowl champs came to honor the man who has more rings than not just them but all other franchises.

Tom Brady's induction into the Patriots Hall of Fame at Gillette Stadium marks a special moment

When Tom Brady won the New England Patriots their first-ever championship, his legendary status was already assured. Then he did it five times again with the franchise. So, if anybody was going to get a Hall of Fame induction, it was going to be him.

He is certainly not the first entry into that exclusive club. In fact, he is the 35th person to be bestowed that honor. But as proof of his greatness, this is the first time the ceremony is being held at Gillette Stadium. Instead of a small ceremony, this is an event separately designed to ensure that the maximum number of fans can witness and pay their respects.

Moreover, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, a government organization, is arranging special transit options for fans wishing to attend the ceremony. When your presence is such that local authorities have to make exemptions for you, you can safely say that you have achieved greatness.

For many Patriots fans, success has been a way of life. But ask an older generation, and they will remember the struggle of following a team without glory. Tom Brady changed all that. Even with all the celebrated players, the franchise would not have won what it did without the quarterback. And it was fitting that he got the recognition he deserved in an induction ceremony fit for a king.
