Well, according to Pro Football Weekly that is the case. http://www.profootballweekly.com/PFW/The+Way+We+Hear+It/default.htm "Our sources in New England tell us that DRE Richard Seymour isnâ€™t yet fully healed from a knee injury that forced him to miss the first seven weeks of the season. Heading into Week 14, the perennial Pro Bowl player had just 11 tackles and has been held without a sack. Those close to the situation say heâ€™s not moving around as well as he used to, and consequently his numbers and his impact on the game are minimized." I know it's only "sources", but it sure helps explain Seymour's apparent loss of effectiveness. Maybe signing the big payday isn't the reason after all.
