    Sign him and trade him for a 1st round pick.

    Seymour talks about Pats, says he won't return
    Don't think so:
    "There's probably about 31 teams I'd consider going to," Seymour said with a laugh, referring to the rest of the field in the 32-team National Football League. When asked if he would accept a call from the Pats if they approached him about coming back, he said, "That isn't something I'm looking to do at all."

    I'd love to see him return, but I expect neither side really wants that to happen.

    If the Pats win the Super Bowl this year, he might change his stance. He might want to come back to New England for one last run at another ring. I wouldn't put a high stock in it, but it isn't outside the realm of possibility.

    Besides, Belichick is a guy who typically doesn't get sentimental for players he lets go. Other than end of the roster role players, I can't remember one player he traded, cut, or just let go in free agency that he took back other than Branch and that was only because Belichick had no intention of getting rid of him, but the league pressured him to trade him away.

    I dunna know. Time heals all wounds. I know circumstances were different with Branch (BB wanted him to stay) and Ty (tried to shoot his way out and later considered coming back in 2008).

    I do think that Sey feels blindsided by BB but I'm sure understands why he was delt and was just business (I think??) However, he is a pretty proud man and part of him I'm sure would rather sit home than come back to the Pats (unless they make a sweetheart offer which I doubt).

    Seymour seems like a somewhat stubborn, strong willed kind of guy. Not someone to change his mind easily.

    No way Seymour comes back, although if he wanted to that would be pretty awesome.

    Does not fit into the economic structure.. and he will not come back for reasonable money..

    As much as I like Seymour, he and BB had sometype of falling out.. and some wounds will probably not hea.

    We are in a great situation right now with a ton of picks next year, plus hopefully the return of Ty Warren/Leigh Bodden on D. I don't see any big money signings. If we were going to pay Seymour, we wouldn't have traded him.

    No Jersey Selected

    No Seymour, no Moss, no Asante. Too much money, not enough value, too many good things going on to risk. The photos have come down, the corner has been turned. Forward.

    This is the best answer.

    Getting Branch back was about going forward with a renewed offensive game plan. Why try to get Seymour back? To collect talent for the system? That's not the answer. This defense has some nice karma going for it. Let's not **** it up be revisiting a contract for someone whose locker room presence is going to have unknown effects on this young and growing defense.

    Well played.

    True, though I expect the Lions to back up the Brinks truck before the Pats do.

    Seymour's quote reminds me of my favorite line from Al Pacino in the movie The Devil's Advocate:

    "Vanity. DEFINITELY my favorite sin."

    Seymour has developed the Ty Law syndrome later in his career:

    "I need to feed my family!"
