Tedy Bruschi has been met with nothing but overwhelming praise during his few days back in Foxboro.

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick honored Bruschi with a stirring tribute during the former linebacker’s induction into the Patriots Hall of Fame on Monday, and team owner Robert Kraft echoed those sentiments Tuesday during an ESPN interview from training camp outside Gillette Stadium.

Bruschi, now an NFL analyst for the network, said he tried to keep his emotions in check during his induction ceremony, but that was easier said than done during his chat with Kraft.
