PATS ADD DEPTH TO LINEBACKER CORPS
The Patriots signed former Jet Victor Hobson to a one year deal. Hobson is 28, and plays inside linebacker. He started 14 games with New York last year, and played in all 16, amassing 62 tackles and a pair of sacks. In 2006, he recorded 100 tackles, 6 sacks, and an interception.
With Junior Seau being a complete flake this off-season, and leaving the Patriots in the dark about his intentions, a signing like this one is necessary. Hobson is solid, dependable, and a worker. If Seau comes back, then the Pats have a nice three man rotation at ILB. If Seau doesn't come back, then the Patriots still have some veteran stability at the position.
