Bruschi Would Like to Return to Patriots

Tedy Bruschi signed a two-year contract last February, and as long as the Patriots want him back, the linebacker intends to honor that contract and return for a 14th season with the Patriots. The Boston Globe received this information from a source with knowledge of Bruschi’s thinking.

Bruschi suffered an injury to the MCL in his left knee and missed the final three games of the season, all Patriots victories. He does not require surgery, and should be ready to go next season. Bruschi will be 36 in time for Training Camp 2009.

Reaction: Personally, I think it would make sense to bring Bruschi back. You have no trustworthy linebackers outside of Mike Vrabel, Jerod Mayo, and maybe Adalius Thomas. Keeping Bruschi adds experienced depth to the corps…as long as he has something left in the tank.

  1. Tedy Bruschi is a roided out freak, who needs to retire before he kills himself. Why would you want him back?

  2. The man had a stroke and he’s still a capable NFL linebacker! That should say something…And what’s wrong if he’s the fifth LB?
