Patriots LB Raekwon McMillan, an ex-Dolphin, excited to prove himself in Miami – Boston Herald


WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — It’s been 20 months since Patriots linebacker Raekwon McMillan last played in an NFL game.

So naturally, McMillan’s excited to see the field again. But more than that, Sunday will represent a sort of homecoming, something that isn’t lost on him as a Dolphins second-round pick in 2017.

“It’s been a long time coming. And I’m excited because I get to do it in the first stadium I started in Miami,” said McMillan, who tore his ACL last year. “But I’m just excited to get out there with the guys and show what I can do. And go out there have fun, play ball.”

Dating back to the spring, McMillan has repped with the Patriots starting defense in virtually every practice. McMillan also flashed in all three preseason games, racking up seven tackles, three hurries and a QB hit. Pats coach Bill Belichick spoke positively of McMillan after the team’s preseason finale at Las Vegas, noting health has been the obvious, major difference for him after missing last season due to a torn ACL.
