The New England Patriots on Monday re-signed 12-time Pro Bowl linebacker Junior Seau, adding yet another veteran piece to a possible Super Bowl run.
With his competitive fires stoked again by this year's stint with the Patriots, 17-year veteran linebacker and likely future Hall of Fame member Junio Seau wants to return in 2007.
The Patriots are dealing with a wholesale shuffle at linebacker because of the season-ending broken right arm suffered by starter Junior Seau.
The NFL has fined New England linebacker Junior Seau $7,500 for a play in the Patriots 24-17 victory over the New York Jets last Sunday.
The signing of Junior Seau shows the Patriots are no longer beyond the kind of questioning that less successful franchises would face had they made a similar move, writes Len Pasquarelli.
