per NFL Network McGinest open to going back to New England Free agent linebacker Willie McGinest still has some gas left in the tank â€” for the right situation. McGinest is a guest analyst on NFL Total Access this week, and took some time to chat with NFL.com fans. One of the most recurring questions â€” what is up for the 2009 season? McGinest is up for the right team and right situation. That right team and right situation is the Patriots. McGinest twice made it known that he would love to return to New England where he won three Super Bowls. He even asked for one fanâ€™s help to get into contact with Patriots owner Robert Kraft. I think we will pass.
