    Not really Pats news, but I guess since he used to play for the Pats and the Pats own the Raiders first round pick, it qualifies for Pats news in the dead zone that is the six weeks between minicamp and the start of training camp.

    Oakland Raiders veteran defensive end Richard Seymour has signed his exclusive rights franchise tender, a $12.398 million price tag.

    Congratulations on the payday #93.

    That's great money but, with the labor issues and the possibility of 2011 without football, I'm sure he'll have his agent try to hammer out a long term deal.

    Personally, I doubt Seymour has plans to sign long-term with the Raiders. He'll still have value after this season to other teams. He's crazy if he inks with them long term. This thought that all of a sudden that team can contend because theyve brought in Jason Campbell is crazy talk. I have no doubt he'd rather be back somewhere in the south, southeast playing for an actual contender.

    His value after this season is greatly diminished if there's a lockout in 2011, which is likely at the least.

    93 take away 1 first round pick = 92.

    Even a Raider fan gets that.

    He's crying all the way to the bank; $25M for two years isn't bad at all. He'll worry about his next contract next year.

    Playing for a losing side sure is sweeter when you make coin like that. I sure hope he feels wanted.

    Congrats to Seymour on the tender. He was a very very good player for the Patriots and an integral part in our Superbowl success and establishing what this organization has become today.

    Yep. I love Big Sey as much as the next Pats fan, but he hasn't been worth that kind of coin for a couple years now.

    I guess that depends on where you sit. I expect that the patriots don't think that any non-quarterback is worth $25M for two years.

    Seymour's a smart man. He understands the ramifications of not getting a deal done prior to any work stoppage. As an older player thrown into what could be the largest free agent class ever, he'll struggle to bring in the big deal post impasse.

    Seymour wil have had two years of good money, in addition to the Haynesworth money he was earning with the Pats. But I suspect he will be tired of losing.

    Belechcik has brought back some of his older players before; and I would be delighted if he did so with Seymour too. When Seymour left there were lots of people who needed to be paid and there was not enough to go around. Well Wilfork is signed, the Mankins reeserves apparently are un-needed. And Seymour ais a little older and perhaps a little cheaper and wiser,as he leaves his prime.

    If they resigned him next season, the draft pick will essentially be a two year rental fee. richard wil return just in time to finish his career with the the new Defensive juggernaut.

    That would be pretty awesome, but I very much doubt it! :(
    I Just cannot see it happening.
