Junior Seau Back To New England ?

Posted by Mike on December 5, 2008


From Mike Reiss:

Veteran linebacker Junior Seau is en route to New England for a visit with the Patriots, who are considering re-signing him.

Seau’s visit was first reported by Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated and has been independently confirmed.

Seau, who played for the Patriots in 2006 and 2007, has been out of football this season. In a gathering with New England media members at his San Diego restaurant in October, Seau said he would consider playing again, but only with the Patriots.

“The only reason why I would come back is to finish what we didn’t finish last year,” he said at the time. “That’s the only purpose. There is no other reason for me to come back. With the guys in that locker room, and obviously the organization, there is such a great tie. I have a place in my heart for them forever. I wouldn’t want to fight for anyone else but [Robert] Kraft and [Bill] Belichick.”

The Patriots are thin at linebacker, and re-signed veteran Rosevelt Colvin on Wednesday. Colvin plays outside linebacker in the 3-4 alignment, a position hit by injuries to Adalius Thomas (forearm), Pierre Woods (jaw) and Vince Redd (ankle).

Seau plays inside linebacker, and the Patriots have veteran Tedy Bruschi and rookies Jerod Mayo and Gary Guyton at that spot.

Bruschi has been battling a knee injury of late. Prior to Sunday’s 33-10 loss to the Steelers, Bruschi was worked out by members of the team’s medical and training staff on the field, which appeared to be an indication that his knee injury was serious enough to potentially keep him out of action.
