Patriots Legend Mike Haynes ‘Excited’ For Son’s Commitment To Boston College

HOUSTON — Soon, a Haynes once again could roam the defensive backfield for a New England football team.

This time, that player would be Tate Haynes, who this week committed to Boston College. His father, Pro Football Hall of Fame cornerback Mike Haynes, spent six seasons with the New England Patriots and had his No. 40 retired by the team. And he couldn’t be more thrilled.

The elder Haynes visited NESN.com’s Michaela Vernava on Super Bowl LI Radio Row to talk about his son, the Super Bowl and an important message about prostate cancer.
