Patriots’ Junior Seau retires again

The Associated Press

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Junior Seau is retiring again.

The 12-time Pro Bowl linebacker, who returned to the New England Patriots this season, said in remarks to be broadcast on Showtime on Wednesday night that he has played his last game.

Seau first retired in August 2006 after 13 seasons with San Diego and three with Miami. But he signed with the Patriots four days later and played 27 games for them over two seasons. He retired again after the 2007 season, then came out of retirement for the final four games in 2008 before retiring after that season.

Seau played seven regular-season games this season, all as a backup, and made 15 tackles. In last Sunday’s 33-14 playoff loss to Baltimore, he had a season-high five tackles.

“That’s going to be my last game,” he said on Showtime’s Inside the NFL.
