    Junior Seau, a 12-time Pro Bowl linebacker who played with the San Diego Chargers and the Miami Dolphins during a 16-year NFL career, will announce his retirement Monday.

    Seau will make the announcement at a news conference at Chargers Park on Monday afternoon, the team said in a statement Sunday.
    The 37-year-old Seau spent the past three seasons with Miami after being acquired from San Diego.

    He was released by the Dolphins in March after missing 17 games the past two years due to injury. He finished both seasons on injured reserve, and an Achilles' tendon injury limited him to seven games in 2005. Seau ended the 2004 season on injured reserve because of a torn pectoral muscle

    Seau joining team?

    The News
    The San Diego Union-Tribune is reporting that linebacker Junior Seau could end his days-old retirement and return to play for the Patriots. Seau retired on Monday, but the Patriots are hurting at middle linebacker and think he could be the solution.

    Our View
    This would be a comically short retirement for Seau, but if one is going to come back, this is the time to do it. Seau in the middle could make a difference for the Patriots.

    I agree. He's a class act, and another HoF great without a ring (yet).

    Glad to hear he's got a shot at joining the Patriots. I'd like to see them win a fourth in six years, especially now. They're a franchise that has earned my respect.

    He has lost some of his Hall of Fame prestige with me for going back into the NFL. Oh well, atleast he gets another chance for a ring.
