FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -The New England Patriots have signed 39-year-old linebacker Junior Seau to replace Adalius Thomas.
Seau is a 19-year veteran and 12-time Pro Bowl player. He played 27 games for the Patriots the last two seasons but hasn't been with a team this season.
Thomas will miss the rest of the season because of an arm injury and was placed on injured reserve Friday. The Patriots also are without injured linebackers Eric Alexander and Pierre Woods.
