Patriots players appreciated Kraft’s involvement in the holiday, and his general attitude toward them year-round.

“I feel like he really does relate to the players a lot,” cornerback Jonathan Wilhite said. “He’s always in the locker room, talking, conversating with the players. I didn’t think you’d get that out of a lot of owners. He’s a friendly guy. He cares about winning, and I think he really cares about the football team.

“It motivates you. You know you got a higher power that believes in you, who really cares about you and this football team. It means a lot.”

“It meant a lot,” rookie safety Patrick Chung said. “It’s not often he comes in and talks to us. When he does, guys listen. I looked around, and everyone was focused in on him. When he comes around, everybody listens.”
