Coates, a fifth-round pick out of Livingstone by the Patriots in 1991 stayed with the franchise through the 1999 season, made a catch in 63 straight games and was voted to five Pro Bowl squads.
Coates is second in New England history in touchdown receptions with 50 and third in catches with 490. He ranks fourth with 5,471 yards.
Coates, 38, now lives in South Carolina. He could enter another Hall of Fame down the road ó the one in Canton, Ohio.
