Behind the scenes in all of this,is the agent,Eugene Parker .The Patriots avoid his draft choices,if possible,not because he's a tough negotiator,but because he's a swarmy jerk and the holdout prince. I'm sure he fu-kd up the the talks on extending Seymour..whispering in his ear...."We got them over a barrel, Julius Peppers,Richard,Julius Peppers". I think a couple of years back,Colonel Parker was suspended by the PA for poaching clients,while being unregistered. BB is loathed to deal with him and I think his patience wore thin,quite quickly. Now,Richard is blaming all on the colonel and I smell a lawsuit coming. IMO,this is the back-story of the Seymour trade.
