1) Perhaps Seymour once again threatened to sit out if he didn't get extended. Perhaps this time, Belichick was not giving in. 2) Perhaps, Belichick is fine with Wright at DE. He signed him to a long-term contract after all. He also has Green for this year as Pryor develops. If Belichick is OK with this situation, then he believed that the value of the trade was well worth it. Besides, for Belichick, this is more 2010 free agent situation solved. 3) And yes, as a bonus, money will be available this year for minor extensions, and perhaps for Gostkowski. Mankins and Wilfork are likely issues for 2010. After all, Mankins may be an RFA and Wilfork can be franchised.
