Report: Seau to sign with Patriots

The Patriots are ready to give Junior Seau more post-graduation work. 

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Patriots are expected to sign Seau this week, perhaps as early as Monday.

Seau will help plug a gap at inside linebacker, likely as a reserve.   The 3-1 Patriots also may get Jerod Mayo back in the next few weeks. 

The 40-year-old linebacker will be playing in his 20th season.

    He’ll sign but not play that much. He’ll only see time on running downs, as he can’t cover. This is just injury insurance.

    Ugh, why? Are we too fast on defense or something?
    And Florio, let me join the crowd: FIX THE DAMN LOGIN COOKIE PROBLEM

    Cool. I’m surprised it’s this early in the season.
    Adding him to the inside rotation will allow Bill to go with more 3-4, but they seem to be doing ok with what they’re running now.

    Great feel good 2009 story for a go nowhere team.

    ….And his retiring and unretiring is different from Favre’s how? And yes, I am a Packer fan, and Favre will hopefully get owned tomorrow…Just sick of the media being the reason everyone is sick of a legend. Period.

    So they got rid of Tedy Bruschi for… an older guy?

    He already got trampled by a bull. Not to mention he’s 40 years old. If he makes a single play worth mentioning this season, I will be amazed

    Wow, amazing. Love Seau, and it will be good to see him as a Patriot once again. Seau mentioned he could play, and that the only team he would play for is the Pats (sorry Chargers fans).
    Don’t know how much he has left to give, but I will gladly cheer him on. Would like to see him get his ring.
    Go nowhere team? What idiot said that? Oh yeah, the Patriots are only where they are by luck and the refs, right? What will it take for you idiot types to realize that the Pats are for real? Nothing I guess. I hope they get their next SB win so I can hear your petty excuses about how they lucked their way through the season, playoffs, and Superbowl.

    40 year old man, 22 year old heart.

    Huge difference, The reason Favre comes back is because it’s personal. He made it personal. He has an axe to grind with the Packers (whether it’s warranted or not). Favre turned it into a circus; his Crocodile tears, his going to a hated rival, burning up a lot of the goodwill he built over many years as a Green Bay fixture, getting the jests fined with his injury comments recently, etc, etc. Junior isn’t even in the same league when it comes to the psycho drama Lord Brett has consummated.

    It’s simple. Seau isn’t retired. He didn’t announce his retirement last year. He is just unemployed and keeps signing one year contracts.

    Seau defineately has value as a role player. He is still good at stopping running plays and is a decent blitzer. I’d be concerned about him in coverage down the field but Belichick will use his strengths well.

    Seriously? What happened to the pats when they faced the bills jamhole? Fumblis McKelvin was the best player on the pats team that night. And it was the bills… The jets took you too. So don’t embarrass yourself by putting up your life story on here again.
