CBS Boston

FOXBORO (CBS) – One by one 19 Hall of Fame football greats are gearing up for their next big thrill.

Former NFL player Thurman Thomas says, “It’s almost like going to the Super Bowl it’s really exciting.”

From former Patriot greats Mike Haynes, John Hannah and Curtis Martin to Thurman Thomas and broadcaster James Brown. They are packing up and heading out together, thanks to Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

Former Patriots Hall of Famer Mike Haynes says, “I felt like this can’t be true. It’s unbelievable.”

These men and their wives traveled to Israel Tuesday for a trip of a lifetime.

Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer says, “I had this idea that wouldn’t it be great to take these players to see an Israel that not everyone sees.”

Dermer came up with the idea to bring a little NFL to Israel and Robert Kraft jumped at the chance.
