Sam Cunningham's time has arrived

Tim Graham, who covers the AFC East for ESPN.com, writes on Patriots Hall of Fame inductee Sam Cunningham today. Cunningham will officially be inducted into the team's Hall of Fame this afternoon at a ceremony in the 4 o'clock hour.

"We came, we put in our work as hard as we could and much as we could and for the fans and the people to appreciate it," Cunningham tells Graham. "At the end of the day, that's all you want. You make your money, you spend your money and you do whatever you do. The appreciation factor is something that never goes away."
