    Seymour Info from Brian Billick

    Brian on Mike and Mike (ESPN2) went over the whole Seymour deal and stated he compares Belichick's ability to look at players and know when they are at or just past peak up there with Bill Walsh mentioning Walsh moving on from R. Lott and getting value for him while R. Lott had just one good season after Walsh moving on from him.
    Seymour deal isn't in jeopardy, Seymour will move on to Raiders play out his contract then move on to somewhere else (read Jets, or Miami if he prefers the warmer weather) I think.

    agree with the comments on seymour but he wont play there for just 1 year. He will get a new contract with the Oakland Patriots

    Seymour has been over-rated since his holdout.  He constantly takes himself out of plays and seldom holds his position leaving a huge hole for the run and clear passing lanes.  Pats knew he had reached his peak as a player, but since he had not seen the light to negotiate an extension with a reasonable home-town discount... he was not going to be signed. Getting for him is a great move!  Too bad that other over-rated player, Wilfork, wasn't traded also.  He is wose than Seymour at taking himself out of plays.

    NFL contracts are not worth the paper that they are printed upon.  The team decides they don't want or need you then then you get cut.  Conversely the player decides they want more money or years then they hold out. 

    Seymour has no choices other than to sit out and not get paid.  No FA for him in 2010 if he stays home and the way he handles his business and with his injury history I don't know why anyone would commit major $$$ to him anyway.

    to be honest, i thought he was a goner after last year training camp, what i saw last year was a third down player with a kronic back.... GOOD DEAL BILL...

    Evidently you haven't seen any Patriots games! wilfork is arguably the best NT in the league. He is worth the money they will give him. That is a big reason Seymour was traded, to free up money to re-sign Wilfork. You are a fool!

    The NFL is the best run league.  There are not any guarantees which makes the players earn their keep and keep trying to get the next contract.  I hope the owners continue although the guaranteed contracts have crept into the league and could make the NFL like baseball.

    Yes, you are so right. Seymour is so bad and wasn't the second best player at stopping the run last year.. You might want to check your facts.  Also, Seymour has had two different injuries since his contract extension, both of whcih cost him playing ability..

    This was a BS trade. Seymore was still a good player and I hate seeing him get done like this.

    NFL Contracts aren't worth the paper they're writtin on?  WTH are talking about?  You do realize that the players get signing bonuses that they don't have to return if they get cut..

    Also, if I am not mistaken, the NFL actually has the shortest time for tenure before one can become an unrestricted free agent.  And that is 3 years.  I think it is the age of 28 (30?) and its something ridiculous in MLB also. 

    So, while their contracts aren't guaranteed, they have other benefits that stem from them..

    Yeah, Otis. Maybe Sey & Vince could learn to get their hands up, too, like school children and help our back 6 or 7. 

    Saying BB is a heartless ingrate is ridiculous. Like, he was faking his comments about Teddy.

    Somebody get this troll off the board. Wilfork is not nearly as overrated as Kris Jenkins. And Seymour is about as overrated as Darrelle Revis. Go home.

    Great trade for the Pats, MVP doesn't see the bigger picture only the current picture.
    2011 will come around and the PATS will be able to get the best  LT MLB or WR

    Re: Seymour Info from Brian Billick

    Patriots could very well lose Oak's 1st round pick in these scenarios-Seymour refuses to report to Oak. He cannot return to the Patriots with the bad feelings now present. He demands a trade to another team. Unlikely the Pats will get a pick as high as Oak's 2011 1st round.  He could also eventually report to Oak to qualify as a FA for next year, but Oak will not agree to a 1st round pick for a partial season.
