Saw he was a free agent . Would love to bring him back always loved the big SEY
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.
I'd rather keep G. Warren.
Hell hath no fury
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 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.
if the pats offer him the most money seymour will be on the pats...if the lions offer him the most money seymour will be on the lions...if the university of auburn offers him the most money he will be on the tigers
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!"
I've heard nothing that indicates Seymour won't be back with the Raiders. If someone's got information to the contrary, I'd love to hear/see it.
For my response to this thread, I'll simply post Vince McMahon's theme music...

You say this based on... what?
The immortal Bard had a genuine Bon Mot for this: " The man doth protest too much..."
When signing a FA the question is always will he fit in the new Team. That question is already answered.
The other is why did he leave? Belichick added up the CAP costs for Wilfork, Mankins, Moss, AD, Light and Brady and simply said it all doesn't fit, someone or somones had to go... The biggest single fix was Seymour.
AD and Moss are gone and all the other contracts, save Mankins have been resolved. I'd love to see him back, instantly answering the last piece of rebuilding still to be done.
Good answer by him to save face. The Patriots don't want him back so Seymour, don't be waiting by that phone.
Not a chance in hell and besides I want a young group to continue getting better with youth to stay competitive for another 10 years.
No chance. Seymour was traded in part because of personality issues. I don't see BB taking him in later or Dickie wanting back in.
Loved the Seymour but that's over now.
Seymour won 3 super bowls already, time to go get his money now.
Seymour is 31-years-old, has back problems, misses time on a regular basis and is not part of the makeover plan. He missed 3 games for the Raiders this year (2 of which the Raiders won!) The Raiders were under .500 with Seymour in the game at 6-7. But he was picked for the pro bowl.
Watch for Belichick to draft or trade picks for at least one top-talent defensive lineman in the first two rounds. Richard Seymour is at the end of his career, will miss more games in 2011 and provides less flexibility than a lot of guys. Look at Vince Wilfork and the flexibility he provides - watch for another guy like that for Vince to mentor added to Ty Warren coming back from his injury and the line gets stronger. The young guys improved since August on the D-line and the transition there is under way as well. Seymour doesn't fit that equation.
Sums it up. The Pats are going to pay more then some other team for a player in the home stretch of his career. The bad blood about how the transaction went down doesn't help either.
