    Junior Seau to sign with Patriots?

    Just saw this on ESPN, wondering if anybody can confirm this... Junior Seau is said to come out of retirement and sign with Patriots no later by tomorrow...

    Anybody heard about this?

    I guess it is, that is the real website for the Union Tribue. Beyond that, I have no clue.

    Re: Junior Seau to sign with Patriots?

    I really don't know much about Junior's level of play, can somebody provide me a quick crash course? I heard his level of play has dropped considerably over the last few seasons. Could we still expect to improve our LB situation?

    I have not been a Seau fan at all...think he's one who does little on D..more reputation than playing...so?? I wonder if this WILL help...

    Seau to sign with the Patriots

    There is a column in the San Diego Union Tribune quoting sources that pending a physical the Pats will Sign Seau as a middle linebacker www.signonsandiego.com. This is a terrieble move! Seau has no discipline and is not a BB type player!

    Apparently, BB thinks he's a BB type player. Maybe he knows who his type of player is ? :confused:

    Didn't mention a team, but they said..."coming up, is Junior Seau really retiring?"

    Re: Junior Seau to sign with Patriots?

    Seriously, I think Junior, even at this stage of his career, is better than anybody else we have lining up with Tedy.
    Except of course for Vrabel. But I'd rather have him on the outside.

    I'm not a huge fan of the guy either.

    But he adds depth and is better than Beisel by a mile.

    Think of him as finally having a replacement for Ted Johnson.

    Are you sure it's not April Fools???

    Really...I am not one to be critical..BUT?? I have never seen a LB do so little and get such hype..not since Sam Huff have I seen it. Seau is always ON the pile..usually a lot later than making tackles and..always up and pumping his fist like he was the one making the tackle. UGGH!!! I will wait and see what he CAN DO now..and maybe he can prove me wrong..and THAt will be good..but my initial reaction?? NOT very good...

    Full name: Tiaina Seau.

    Scouts, Inc:

    "Great motor, outstanding instincts...rarely takes false steps...does a good job of reading and reacting quickly...takes very good angles in pursuit...has lost a step and is no longer fast or fluid enough to matchup 1-on-1...struggles against quicker and faster backs in man coverage...lacks ideal closing burst...doesn't show same acceleration on blitz...aging and no longer has physical tools to get around blocks like he used to...doesn't show the same closing burst in pursuit, which is leading him to leave his feet and lunge..."

    Can't really complain about this. It isn't like we are giving him Bruschi or Vrabel's roster spot.

    He is better depth than the other options.

    Seau is NOT a BB player. He is a freelancer who has no idea of gap assignments. I live in San Diego and have watched him run up to the line of scrimmage and jump around like a clown!! He has made a name by being a showboat. I have seen him do his jackass dance after a tackle for a loss in a 26-0 blow out that he was on the loosing end of! Find anyone else!

    Eh... I kinda thought he was over the hill last year. Hope I'm wrong (if indeed BB pulls the trigger on him).

    Great news if true, he would help the team even if it would only be for just a few snaps a game. Plus maybe this would take attention away from all that steroid BS.

    I'm kind of shocked by this. I've never been a big Junior fan but for what we are looking for, why not.


    He doesn't have to be an All Pro, just fill the need. Interesting.

    If he wasn't a BB type player he wouldn't be coming here.
