Patriots Expected To Sign Junior Seau This Week
After losing Tedy Bruschi to retirement, Mike Vrabel to the Kansas City Chiefs, and Jerod Mayo to the injury bug, the New England Patriots thought it was about time to give Junior Seau a call.
Well, Seau has been spotted at Foxborough, taking a physical and laying the groundwork for a deal that would bring the veteran linebacker for his 20th NFL season. Seau hinted at a comeback earlier this season but cautioned that it would be later in the season. Well, with the Patriots in need of more depth at the linebacking position, Bill Belichick and company obviously are willing to welcome the return of the Tasmanian Devil.
A return in the midst of season isn’t anything new to Seau, as he returned to the Patriots in December last year. The 40-year-old may need a couple of weeks to re-acquaint himself with the playbook and get into football shape but we should be seeing Seau sooner rather than later.
