Mike Vrabel spoke during a brief appearance at halftime of Sunday’s Patriots-Bills game.

The former Patriots linebacker, who now coaches the Tennessee Titans, was inducted into the Patriots Hall of Fame on Saturday.

“I haven’t been back as much as I should since 2009, but I want to thank the fans who made this stadium incredibly special,” Vrabel said. “When we traveled, you were there. When we were here, you were here. I can imagine how you screamed and screamed during night games on third down and then threw the snow.

Vrabel also thanked fellow inductee Dante Scarnecchia, his former Patriots teammates and former coach Bill Parcells, among others.

Vrabel played eight seasons with the Patriots from 2001 to 2008. He and Matt Cassel were traded to the Chiefs in 2009 in exchange for a second-round draft pick.

Vrabel was a member of three Patriots Super Bowl teams and caught eight of his 10 career touchdown passes with New England. He started 140 games in the NFL and made 762 tackles.

“I don’t want you to take this organization for granted,” Vrabel said. “I’ve been to a lot of places, it’s a special place with great leadership, great fans, great management and great coaching. Enjoy, it’s not like that everywhere, thank you very much.
