    Tom Cable is a great, capable leader of men. I take him (and all NFL head coaches) at their word.

    Maybe the Pats are fitting Seymour with an iron jaw just in case Cable gets mad at him and decides to haul off at him.

    BTW, didn't see the other thread. Mods, you can combine with the other thread.

    Cable & the Raiders are such a joke that BB can't resist doing business with them.

    Re: Tom Cable says that the Pats are holding up the trade and Seymour wants to be Rai

    What issue could there be between the Pats and Seymour?? What is he waiting for?? I mean really...that is totally ridiculous..THERE is nothing the Pats can do at all.... They can't change his contract...or change any of the terms...if they promised him something..THAT can not be the same of a new team...can it?? Pure baloney..if he wanted to be in Oakland..he would have gone..maybe he wishes to say goodbyes to the front Office..

    Tom Cable's word is as good as gold...ask his assistant coach whose jaw he broke and then denied the whole thing.

    It'll be worth the monetary equivalent during the civil trial.

    Mike Lombardi on the NFLN,just reported that the pata are in compiance with the trade terms and don't know what the h-ll Crable is talking about.

    He also said that Oakland offered a 2 and 5 in 2010,but BB declined for the #1 in 2011

    Seymour doesn't want to be a Raider, he won't show up. Mabe Cable is reffering to the 5 day letter.

    Or

    Seymour Started crying on his knees to Bill to take him back and would do anything not to go to the Raiders.

    Or maybe Cable has come down with "Al Davis" disease and isn't sure what's going on... :rolleyes:

    So Cable claims to have talked to Sey, and there are issues still to be dealt with in Pat land. Hmm.

    Is big Sey due any type of bonus that he has not received, doubt it?

    Maybe he needs his stuff from his locker and he is locked out of the building, nah.

    ???????

    Re: Tom Cable says that the Pats are holding up the trade and Seymour wants to be Rai

    Quick search turned up this precedent:

    Indy.com | Post: Bills DT McCargo fails Colts physical, trade void | Indianapolis, Indiana

    That article makes it seem like the requirements of passing a physical depend on what is specifically outlined in the trade itself (so not a CBA issue)- which means that it is possible that this requirement wouldn't have been included.

    That said, I'd be willing to bet that it's a standard clause in all trades, as it prevents teams from screwing someone over by unloading players with undisclosed injuries. If that's the case, then the trade is likely contingent on Seymour taking (and passing) a physical.

    It's just a way to cover up the fact that Seymour really does not want to be there. I have to say that I feel for the guy. I wonder why Denver wasn't calling...

    LOL, maybe Seymour is making calls to other teams begging them to make a trade for him with Oakland.

    He will show, he does not have a choice does he.

    Re: Tom Cable says that the Pats are holding up the trade and Seymour wants to be Rai

    This 2 and a 5 in 2010 is interesting.Mike Lombardi used to be in the Raiders FO,so he knows what he's talking about.

    Mike May**** said,long-term,this ia a steal for NE,especially if there's a rookie salary cap in 2011.

    May**** also said when he saw the Pats in camp,thar Ron brace looked really good and can play NT,as well as Seymour's spot in a 3-4.
