The Patriots have just announced that they have scheduled a press conference for 10 a.m. Thursday with wide receiver Troy Brown, coach Bill Belichick and owner Robert Kraft. No other details have been provided, but it’s expected that Brown will announce his retirement from the game of football. The classy veteran holds the franchise records for career receptions (557), and places second on the franchise’s receiving yardage list with 6,366 yards. In addition, Brown set a franchise single-season record with 101 receptions in 2001. He spent 15 years in a New England uniform — only quarterback Steve Grogan (16 seasons) has had a longer Patriots career than Brown.
