Light played tackle for 11 seasons, winning the NFL title in his rookie year of 2001 and making three Pro Bowls. Light has "never seen anything but a win in Gillette Stadium" as a fan. "Nobody in the stadium will be more fired up for the game."

Faulk, a running back from 1999-2011, says it takes some adjustment being "on the other side of the ball."

Joining Light and Faulk will be 2012 NFL Punt, Pass and Kick national champion Matiwos Rumley, a 7-year-old from Hebron, Conn. Rumley was adopted by an American family from an Ethiopian orphanage last year. He'd never picked up a football until the week before his first PPK competition, the Patriots said.
