Patriots confirm Seau signing

By Chris Forsberg

FOXBOROUGH -- The Patriots confirmed the signing of Junior Seau this morning, releasing defensive lineman Terdell Sands to make room on the active roster for the 40-year-old linebacker.

The Versus network, which will begin airing a series called, "Sports Jobs with Junior Seau" later this year, announced the signing on their website Tuesday, but the Patriots did not immediately confirm. Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Tuesday during a conference call, "We don't have anything to say about it."

Sands signed with the Patriots on Sept. 28 and appeared in one game against the Ravens, playing 14 snaps and making one tackle. He did not dress for Sunday's game vs. the Broncos in Denver.
