Addison was an original member of the American Football League's Boston Patriots. He spent his entire career with the team, from 1960 to 1967. He received All-AFL honors in his rookie season. When the AFL formed an All-Star game in 1961, he was selected for four consecutive games.

In 1971, Patriots fans elected Addison to the first All-Decade Team.
