The Globe’s Chris Gasper is reporting this morning that the Patriots will hold a 10 a.m. press conference today at which Troy Brown, the team’s all-time leading receiver and punt returner, will announce his retirement from the NFL after 15 seasons.

Over the next week, we here at PD will try to sum up Brown’s magnificent career and everything he’s meant to the Patriots and their fans.

For a task that tall, we may need a month. In the meantime, we invite you to leave your thoughts on Troy’s retirement in our comments section.
