it's official: Lenon to Patriots

Wednesday, May 27, 2009

Following up on yesterday's news that the Patriots worked out former Lions LB Paris Lenon, Mike Riess of the Boston Globe reports that the Pats went ahead and inked him to a deal; terms were not initially disclosed.  Lenon should get an opportunity to be the top backup at ILB, and plenty of looks on special teams.  Also, one would think that Tedy Bruschi is nearing the end of the road, so Lenon has a chance to earn the inside shot at starting next to 2008 defensive rookie of the year Jerod Mayo.

Discussion is underway in The Den!
