I already got sentimental Wednesday during my Two-Minute Drill, so I'll hold the sap for my final mailbag for NESN.com. Thanks to everyone for their questions, and if you've got more to ask, find me on Twitter. Who plays outside linebacker opposite Rob Ninkovich in the 3-4? --@animedpet, via Twitter It's a tough question to answer because it depends what the Patriots are aiming to accomplish.

Seau shot himself in the chest this month. Although there has been no link established between possible head injuries and his death, Johnson says he's convinced it is at least part of what...
