The agent for linebacker Junior Seau said that the 18-year NFL veteran is visiting the Patriots today, and revealed that Seau landed in the Boston area at 3:45 p.m. Eastern Time.
Marvin Demoff, Seau's agent, said that if Seau is healthy it shouldn't be difficult for the sides to reach a deal that would put Seau back in a Patriots uniform.
"I don't think the contract will be an issue," said Demoff. "If Junior is there and nothing is different from what they thought last night, I would suspect they'd do a contract, and he'd be a Patriot tomorrow. I don't think any promises were made to Junior or by Junior to them before he got on the plane."
Demoff said that Seau got a call from Patriots coach Bill Belichick and vice president of player personnel Scott Pioli last night.
"Whatever transpired in the conversation yesterday between Junior and the Patriots it got him on a plane to continue talking," said Demoff.
Seau had surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff in his left shoulder in February. Demoff said that should not be a problem, if Seau returns to the playing field.
"His shoulder has been fine since sometime in August," said Demoff.
