Pats players, fans turn out for Boston auto show
BOSTON (WHDH) -- Before the big game, some Patriots players are taking time to meet with fans, and 7News caught up with them -- including the breakout star of last Sunday's game.
The auto show was full of shiny machines with serious horsepower, but the real stars that revved up the crowd were Patriots players Aaron Hernandez and Shane Vereen.
“We’re still in preparation. We’re still getting ready to go,” Vereen said. “I’ll be ready for Sunday on Sunday.”
Signing autographs and taking pictures, the tight end and running back took a break from preps for the upcoming game against the Ravens to be with fans.
Vereen is fresh off his breakout three-touchdown game against Houston.
“In a sense, it’s humbling. It really is. But at the same time, it’s what’s expected of me. It’s what the coaches ask and it’s what helps the team win and that’s all I can really do,” Vereen said.
And Vereen says he still remembers that over-the-shoulder pass he caught for a touchdown.
“I remember Tom throwing a beautiful pass that I was able to bring in and luckily we were able to come out with the W,” said Vereen.
The Convention Center was gleaming with every car you could own. But what car would number 34 be?
“I’d be a speed car. Some kind of speed car. Probably a Corvette, but not the convertible. The regular Corvette,” Vereen said.
As for his teammates, the running back had some good car-player comparisons.
“…Tom would be something nice and luxurious for sure [like a Bentley], definitely a Bentley, a Rolls,” said Vereen.
