Former Patriots cornerback Ty Law is back in town this week, and he will be honored at The Tradition tonight at TD Garden. A piece with comments from Law is now posted on ESPNBoston.com, as he speaks on being humbled to receive a football legacy award.
He was asked Monday what he thinks it will be like on the stage with the other honorees, including Boston Celtics legend Larry Bird.
"It's going to be great. I'm going to take it in, soak it up, and be glad that I've accomplished enough to be recognized among the greats," Law answered. "Part of me is like 'You still have it in you, I can still get back out there and play', but when you sit down at the end of the day and people recognize your career and feel you've done well and brought something to the table for the organization, the community and the city, you know what? I'm OK with being done. It's all right. I'm fine."
One of Law's closest friends, former Patriots safety Lawyer Milloy, shared his favorite Law memory via Twitter, @LawyerMilloy.
"INT for a TD in SB XXXVI!" Milloy wrote. "Confidence booster for an under-dog that NEVER looked back! #ManOnAIsland"
