Robert Kraft takes current, former Patriots to Israel


Patriots owner Robert Kraft is continuing a tradition this summer by taking a group of current and former New England players on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Israel.

A video posted this week on shows Kraft greeting his guests boarding a charter flight for a journey dubbed “Touchdown in Israel III.”

The video shows former players Andre Tippett, Drew Bledsoe, Scott Zolak, Vince Wilfork, Ty Law, Kevin Faulk and newly-added assistant coach Jerod Mayo as well as current Patriots Stephon Gilmore, Stephen Gostkowski, Joe Thuney, Nate Ebner, David Andrews, Isaiah Wynn and Brandon King as part of the lucky travel party.

“I want to welcome you all,” Kraft said. “I hope this turns out to be one of the greatest weeks of your life.

“There are connections that will be made that will just be life-changing.

“Let’s have a good time.”
