Troy Brown Retires from NFL


Thursday Sept. 25, 2008
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- Troy Brown has retired after 15 seasons
with the New England Patriots in which he set a team record for
most receptions. The wide receiver, who hasn't played this season, made the announcement at a news conference Thursday attended by team owner Robert Kraft and coach Bill Belichick.

Brown was born in Barnwell, and graduated from Blackville-Hilda High School before going to Marshall University.

Brown spent his entire NFL career with the Patriots after they
drafted him in the eighth round in 1993 out of Marshall. His 557
catches are first in team history and his 6,366 yards receiving are
second to Stanley Morgan's 10,352. Brown played in one Pro Bowl,
after the 2001 season. He also played defensive back late in his career. In 2007, he played in one game.
