Future NFL Hall-of-Fame linebacker Junior Seau is expected to come out of retirement this week to sign with the New England Patriots. It will be the 40-year-old’s third tour of duty in Foxboro.
He is entering his 20th NFL season — the majority (13) spent with the San Diego Chargers, three with the Miami Dolphins and four with New England.
Seau was expected to sign after the Patriots gave him a physical and a workout last week.
Seau nixed his retirement last season to play the final four games with New England after playing 27 games with them in 2006-07. via.
Ask any old person–retirement is boring. And really, it’s not like there’s anyplace else in the world where one can slap white people senseless like one can in the NFL. And if he can live the dream for another 11 weeks, then good on him. I guess the rodeo clowning and amateur breast consultations aren’t paying the bills the way working on Sundays will, either. Thanks, Crista.
