It looks like the fist pumping is back…and Tom Brady couldn’t be happier. Days after announcing his "graduation" from the NFL, Junior Seau is set to return to professional football with the New England Patriots. Seau's retirement lasted about as long as McLean Stevenson’s Hello Larry series.
A lot of bitter Chargers fans and bitter sports writers will get in a twist over this, but it’s not that big of a deal. If you have a chance to play for a Super Bowl contending team (and they want you), it seems like a no-brainer.
But you kind of have to question the wisdom of the Patriots right now. Maybe the focus of the club should be on signing receiver Deion Branch and shielding Tommy Boy away from the BALCO investigation than signing a linebacker whose effectiveness has diminished measurably.
But good luck to Junior.
