Patriots

Raekwon McMillan will have another chance to contribute for the New England Patriots next season.

The 25-year-old linebacker, who tore his ACL during training camp, signed a one-year extension with the team Monday per ESPN's Field Yates.

McMillan signed a one-year deal with the Patriots this past offseason after spending two seasons with the Miami Dolphins and one with the Las Vegas Raiders. The Ohio State product tore his ACL in August, marking the second time in his short career he's suffered the injury.

Last year with the Raiders, McMillan totaled 27 tackles and a forced fumble.
