Junior Seau’s NFL career might not be over just yet.
Mike Reiss of the Boston Globe reports that Seau is en route to New England, and the Patriots are considering signing him. Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated reports that Seau has kept himself in tremendous shape and would be ready to go.
Seau, who will turn 40 next month, played all 16 games for the Patriots last season. Although he has been out of football since the Super Bowl, he hasn’t shut the door on returning.
Seau played 13 seasons for the Chargers, three for the Dolphins and two for the Patriots. He’ll be a Hall of Famer just as soon as he’s eligible, but his Hall of Fame eligibility may be close to getting pushed back another year.
