Lenon, Fills The Need Of The New England Patriots For A New LB

May 27, 2009, when Paris Lenon, the former linebacker of the Detroit Lions, signed with his new team – the New England Patriots.

Lenon is going to fill the position of LB McKenzie. As we can recall, Tyrone McKenzie was drafted by the Patriots during the 2009 NFL Draft. But during the rookie minicamp, McKenzie was badly injured on his right knee resulting to torn ACL. With that, McKenzie will not be able to play for the entire season.

Lenon has marked his career best during the 2007 season with the Detroit Lions, where he totaled 116 tackles (in which 86 of them are solo), 2 forced fumbles and 1 interception. Last season, he also led the Lions with 12 tackles versus the Tennessee Titans. Also the same season, Lenon soar leading the team against the Minnesota Vikings with 13 tackles, 2 forced fumbles and half a sack.

Before Lenon’s three-season career with the Lions, he has also been with the Green Bay Packers for two times, totaling of four seasons with the team. Aside from that, Lenon has already been with the Carolina Panthers (where he was originally an undrafted free agent in 2000), also had been a member of the Seattle Seahawks, as well as the Memphis Maniax of the XFL.

The 31 year old veteran having spent his seven years with the NFL has surely a lot to offer to his new team. The Patriots indeed believes that this move will surely benefit the team for the coming 2009 season.
