Patriots: Unaware of any problems with Seymour trade

Oakland coach Tom Cable says that Richard Seymour wants to be a member of the Raiders, but there are “some issues still between him and the Patriots that are being worked out.”

Patriots spokesman Stacey James, however, said he was unaware of any difficulties surrounding the deal.

And as Mr. Florio pointed out:  What could the Patriots and Seymour possibly have to work out?

The NFL transaction wire listed the Seymour deal on Sunday, although the trade wouldn’t be finalized until Seymour passes a physical in Oakland.  Seymour remains in the Boston area, and the Raiders don’t know when that physical will take place.

    Problems? Cable said there were issues, not problems.
    Keep trying to make this ridiculous non event into a story, its become very pathetic.

    Will he purposely tank his physical…like when you were a kid and put the thermometer on the heater to stay home from school?

    There’s more going on here than we’re ever gonna know…

    I liked it better when you called him “Florio.” So, what could Seymour, Dick possibly have to work out?? Possibly a sign-and-trade extension from the Patriots before he shows in Oakland perhaps??? Isn’t that his MO? “Money or me no play.”

    And the dysfunction that is the Raiders continues.

    Their is a lot to workout when a player gets traded a week before the season. Moving, goodbyes, family stuff. duh. This isn’t even a story to be honest. PFT writers must be bored.

    Could the Patriots be trying to play the angle of
    “play for less money or get traded to the raiders…”?

    If you have not facts just make them up. Its the Raiders. No one will complain.
    You guys are as bad as the other media outlets you love to bash.

    this was just reported by a source close to the situation:
    “Newly acquired defensive end Richard Seymour is expected to report to the Oakland Raiders and take his physical on Tuesday, according to several sources. Seymour, did not report today, due to wanting to spend the Labor Day holiday with his family before joining his new team.”

    Gregg & Mikey,
    Raiders next practice is tuesday, IF Seymour still hasn’t reported then you have a story.

  14. Sundayjack says: Sep 7, 2009 7:40 PM

    There could be no greater end to this than Richard Seymour needing to return to the Patriots disgruntled and resentful. The Raiders will have once again been reminded that they are a running league joke, and the Patriots will be smoldering from the inside out.
    I ask for so little in this world. Please make that happen.

    Seymour wants to see more money!!! Cheers

    Can’t wait for the season to start. Florio and crew aren’t trying very hard if all they do is make up shit about what in actuality is a significant trade. Step your game up, PFT.

    Of course the Patroits are unaware of any problems. Unless of course laughing their ass off at B.B bending crazy Al over his walker again is a problem.
    Seymour wants to be with our team about as much as he would be looking foward to getting an enema from a fat gay male nurse. Davis will make him the highest paid DL-men in football. Seymour will look at his wallet bite his tongue and say. Ya I am glad to be in Oakland.
    Hope they give Seymour a tour of the building and let him see the famous overhead projector Clueless Al is so proud of.

    Even if Seymour doesn’t show up in Oakland, the biggest factor here is you (Florio ) will end up with egg on your face because your initial response to the trade was the fact the Raiders would “rent” a player and lose a 2011 first round draft pick because of the “rental.”
    Al Davis isn’t a moron regardless of the ways you try to portray him. He’s not going to give up a first round pick for a rental player.
    The only way he completes the trade is if Seymour agrees to an extension.
    So he shows up with an extension (the only reason he’ll show) or he stays in Foxboro and Oakland keeps their draft pick.
    Really, what’s the risk or highway robbery that you keep referring to with regards to this trade?
    I wish you would respond to these comments because it would make the site much more entertaining. Obviously you can’t answer all of them, but some?

    Working out what his contract will be when he returns to the Patriots next offseason when his contract expires.

  20. TSE says: Sep 7, 2009 8:51 PM

    A couple of the last comments here don’t make sense. For one, Al Davis doesn’t HAVE to have an extension worked out, because if there is no new deal he can just franchise tag Seymour, and he may have already calculated that he is fine with doing that if necessary to keep him for an extra year or two, so it’s guaranteed to NOT be a rental situation, which also means that he has leverage to get Seymour to extend a long term deal anyways. So without having a definite extension agreed to, Al Davis essentially has him pretty much locked up for a while in either scenario.
    Thus, the other comment about working a private deal with the Pats to come back is nullified since Al Davis will have those rights secured and he won’t be able to make it back….unless of course the Pats want to trade something to Al to get him back!

    FlowerO , ever thought about selling cars? Wheres your car FAX? Wheres your football facts? I wish you had some! You come up with more shit than any writer I know. You start more crap , with all your rumor bullshat. You kinda make me feel sorry for you except you get paid too much.

    florio really when you write your rumors, try taking off the patriots underwear and move away from the mirror…get a real story like Ben raping a willing participant or something….

  23. todd bennett says: Sep 7, 2009 9:18 PM

    LOL Ragin thats some funny shit

  24. Raiders757 says: Sep 7, 2009 10:34 PM

    If Seymour reports tomorrow, Florio will look like an ass. Either way, Oakland wins out on this deal. This trade is nothing more than extension of the Burgess trade.
    Derrick Burgess and, at best, a mid to late first round pick in 2011 for Seymour and two draft picks.
    If Seymour doesn’t show? Florio can take unprofessional cheap shots at the Raiders and say “I told ya’ so”.
    Why the Raiders are being ripped on for trying to make their team better right now, is beyond me. It’s getting old, and it’s uncalled for.
