Former Browns linebacker Willie McGinest, who was expected to retire after the 2008 season, might not be done after all.
In a chat on NFL.com Wednesday night, McGinest said he would consider returning to the New England Patriots, where he spent his first 12 seasons and won three Super Bowls. McGinest, 37, is a free agent who has played 15 years in the NFL.
In response to a question from a Patriots fan, McGinest said, ''I enjoyed my run there. Don't count me out, I might spend my last year in New England. We will see.''
Later in the chat, McGinest said, ''It has to be the right team and the right situation. But the Patriots are on that list.'' He joked with the caller that he should call New England owner Robert Kraft and get a deal done.
