Seymour would consider 31 teams

After a year spent in Oakland, Richard Seymour is headed for unrestricted free agency.

He’s open to playing for just about any team.   Except the one that drafted him.

“There’s probably about 31 teams I’d consider going to,” Seymour said in a conversation with Tom Curran of Comcast Sports New England.  TC asked him if he’d take a call from the Patriots if they approached him.

“That isn’t
something I’m looking to do at all,” Seymour said. “But there’s no ill will. I wish them the best. I really mean that. . . . I think
it could have ended in a more respectful way, but that’s just my
personal opinion.”

Seymour certainly isn’t at his career peak, but he’ll be an attractive, experienced starting option for the many 3-4 teams in the league.  (The Chiefs and Broncos come to mind.) 

With that said, the Patriots are likely very content to hold Oakland’s first-round pick in 2011.

    I thought they traded him for a 2010 pick….can you even trade picks 2 years down the road?

  2. Joe in Toronto, Canada says: Jan 12, 2010 11:41 AM

    He’s not going anywhere, he’s about to be franchised.
    Haters can suck balls.

  3. tre_fizzle says: Jan 12, 2010 11:41 AM

    If the Niners don’t franchise Aubrayo Franklin, they should make a run at Seymour and move Sopoaga to NT and/or draft a stud NT like Cody/Williams.

  4. PFTiswhatitis says: Jan 12, 2010 11:41 AM

    and less than 31 teams would consider Seymour!
    I heard this last night on TV. Tom set him up perfectly.
    Note to MDS, Tom Curran still rocks around here. He is still Tom Curran not TEC or any other such self promoting BS. Live and learn.

  5. dunkingonuts says: Jan 12, 2010 11:42 AM

    Seymour isn’t going anywhere if he doesn’t sign a long term deal he will be franchised. Stop printing crap articles..!
    Rosenthal is turning out to be a bigger idiot than Florio….!

    “After a year spent in Oakland, Richard Seymour is headed for unrestricted free agency.”
    Except for that pesky franchise tag thingy that will be applied if he doesn’t resign with the Raiders. Al may be stuck in his ways but don’t expect him to give up a first round pick next year for only one year of service out of Mr. Seymour.

  7. madsqgrdn says: Jan 12, 2010 11:44 AM

    that sounds good …so I guess they are fine trading a probable super bowl run in Bradys prime for a first round pick in 2011. they are a favorite if they still have Seymor

  8. chief says: Jan 12, 2010 11:45 AM

    I said when the trade happened that the Raiders gave up a first round pick for one year of his service and the Chiefs will sign him in the off season.

  9. Docny1975 says: Jan 12, 2010 11:52 AM

    He should come to the Jets so that way can pay back Bill twice a year for trading him to the joke of the NFL. Can you franchise players still if the current contract expires?

    I am genuinely surprised the Raiders didn’t extend him right after the trade. Surely they would have thought of that & dealt with it prior, right?

  12. The Coop says: Jan 12, 2010 11:54 AM

    He won’t go to New England, but there’s no ill will?
    Seems like that’s a contradiction, although he’s probably just as sick of the Chowda-heads as everyone else.

    Sure, after the Raiders franchise him you could try trading for him.

    Congratulations to the Raiders for recently completing their SEVENTH straight season with AT LEAST eleven losses, an NFL record. Quite an accomplishment. Kudos to you Raiders!

  15. blacktoothgrin says: Jan 12, 2010 11:55 AM

    He isn’t going anwyhere people, Al may be crazy but he isn’t that crazy. He’ll slap the franchise tag on him faster than you can say 2011 draft pick, he didn’t give up that pick for a one and done.

    So Seymour would have made a difference this past weekend? Don’t think so. Pats had their run, time to start rebuilding. Moss can’t be trusted, running game is mediocre at best, and more young blood on d.

  17. swervinmervin says: Jan 12, 2010 11:59 AM

    HE will be franchised. PRetty obvious.
    My question is – what happens if there is no season in 2011??? What happens to NE’s draft pick acquired from Oakland? Does it become a 2012 draftpick or are the Pats out of luck?

  18. XLI says: Jan 12, 2010 12:00 PM

    Franchised? The Raiders are going to pay Seymour Top 5 DT money for a player they’ll just lose next year?
    He’s not going to be too happy about the Franchise Tag if that’s what they do.
    The Patriots scored here with a 1st Round Pick. Seymour still has a little left in him, but to land a 1st Rounder that the Raiders could have used big time is borderline robbery.

  19. raybin says: Jan 12, 2010 12:02 PM

    He can consider everything he wants. He’s gonna get slapped with the franchise tag.
    Al likes Seymour. He opens up the checkbook bigtime for players he likes. He’ll offer him some gigantic sum, I have no doubt.

  20. raybin says: Jan 12, 2010 12:03 PM

    “I am genuinely surprised the Raiders didn’t extend him right after the trade. Surely they would have thought of that & dealt with it prior, right?”
    I’m sure Al thought of it, but that’s now how he operates. For instance, he didn’t even call Shane Lechler’s agent last year until less than a week before free agency started.

  21. 1nationraidernation says: Jan 12, 2010 12:03 PM

    c’mon now, do you really think al traded a #1 pick of the 2011 draft that will not take place because there will be a lock out.
    Seymour either signs a 4 year backloaded deal for around 45 mill, or he gets franchised where i think he will make around 13 million next year,

  22. usher says: Jan 12, 2010 12:03 PM

    man if they raiders don’t franchise or resign him it has to be one of the dumbest trades ever

  23. JJCheesehead says: Jan 12, 2010 12:04 PM

    yes teams trade picks down the road all the time. were you alive when the bears traded for cutler?
    i give seymour credit for not bashing the patriots when given the opportunity though. he is a class act. we all know that if he gets to play the patriots, there will be some extra motivation. thats why i think the dolphins could be on his short list of teams to sign with. i dont think the other afc contender(the jets) have the cap room.

    “And Davis would rather suffer 3-13 seasons with JaMarcus Leaf at the helm and not have to admit he was wrong then let a guy actually coach by putting the better guy on the field. ”
    This pretty much nails it. I don’t believe all the talk I hear about “All davis wants to do is win.”
    Bull. If that were the case, he would’ve changed his ways long ago. He’d rather continue seeing his team go down in flames year after year than admit error.

    In the event of a lock out the 2011 draft will go on as planned. The draft pick would not sign a contract until the lockout is over but the teams that draft them hold their rights.

  28. downsouth49er says: Jan 12, 2010 12:21 PM

    Seymour is still very bitter about being traded, he needs to give it a rest already. If anything he should be focused on getting out of that sh!t hole which is oakland

  29. madsqgrdn says: Jan 12, 2010 12:22 PM

    ——————————————————————
    wow if you think they couldn’t have beaten the Ravens with Seymor you’re not paying attention. Vince wilfork and seymor worked so well together against the run because if you doubled on the other one killed you all day..all day. The minute they split those two up they killed thier run defense which of course led to the pass d falling apart.
    1 st round picks are great ..but mayo is not the difference make he was last year without seymor and wilfork absorbing all of the blocks they do. they had by far the best 34 d line in the game and it covered for the weaknesses of the rest of the d.
    and rebuilding..you dont have time to rebuild with brady..you need to get bACK to contention next year…which would be a lot easier with seymor. bad move ..said it then say it now..

  30. Rex Ryan=Fat Twat says: Jan 12, 2010 12:23 PM

    You have just as good of odds to draft a bust as u do a stud. Seymour is proven. al davis and ralph wilson are about as retarded as it gets.

    apparently you haven’t been paying attention to how “well” the raiders have drafted in the last 10-20 years!! getting an over the hill great player is waaay better than another Russell or heyward-bey.

  32. CT Pats Fan says: Jan 12, 2010 12:30 PM

    @swervinmervin
    The draft still goes ahead, players drafted will be under contract with the team that drafted them.
    The big problem for Seymour is that he was all set to rack up some nice looking stats, with the Patriots, and head into FA as a wanted man commanding top dollar.
    He had an anonymous year with the Raiders, so no one is breaking the bank for him, especially with a potential 2011 work stoppage looming.

  33. Legend says: Jan 12, 2010 12:31 PM

    Uh, if I were a betting man I’d say that the Pats would’ve gladly undone the deal and given the Raiders back their pick. Seymour was missed in tremendous ways by the Pats this year. Witness their early exit from the playoffs due to Baltimore’s 234 rushing yards and 4, count ‘em, 4 rushing touchdowns.
    For your information, most of the Patriots players on defense know how badly that trade hurt their team and expressed it, as was reported in the news all throughout the season.
    If nothing else, Al Davis screwed the Pats over this year at the cost of a future #1 draft pick. Only Al Davis could enjoy such a thing, but I guarantee the Pats will forever regret making that deal solely on the basis of what it cost their team in the 2009 season.

  34. BenRapistberger says: Jan 12, 2010 12:40 PM

    dumping a guy 1-2 years too soon is better than 1-2 years too late.
    Thanks for the draft pick.

  35. dogma1 says: Jan 12, 2010 12:41 PM

    Al Davis isn’t going to let him walk after giving up a 2011 1st round pick. Al will give him a huge $50 million dollar deal or put the franchise tag on him.

  36. RaiderhateR4Life says: Jan 12, 2010 12:44 PM

    Joe in Toronto, Canada- “…the raiders are heading up, deal with it.”
    you called the guy you said this to ignorant, but after a statement like this maybe you should look in a mirror. Then again the raiders are at the bottom of the barrel when it comes to NFL teams, so maybe all you pathetic raiders fans can do is look up.

  37. bornman3 says: Jan 12, 2010 12:44 PM

    Why 31 teams, shouldn’t it be 30? You would figure both the Pats and Raiders are out, unless he wants to stay in the “crap” hole and lose 11 games every year.

  38. Rick says: Jan 12, 2010 12:46 PM

    The Pats are actually doing Davis a favor taking his #1 pick. He has a history of making bad choices with them.

  39. RaiderChile says: Jan 12, 2010 12:46 PM

    Why would Seymour return to Oakland? Money? Maybe if the amount is big enough but he wants to win and maybe content going somewhere else and win as opposed to staying and losing.

  40. ch19079 says: Jan 12, 2010 12:49 PM

    You dont give up a 1st rounder (even one a year down the road) for a player just to watch him walk out the door 6 months later. There has to be some “stupidity” clause that will allow the NFL to remove this embarassment from existance.
    They gave a 1st rounder to the freaking PATs!!!

  41. DocBG says: Jan 12, 2010 12:51 PM

    how would a 3-4 DE work as a DT in a 4-3 system?
    If its an easy conversion to make, it would give him a ton of more options and might bump up the paycheck too. 3-4 ends are usually bigger than 4-3 counterparts, so you’d think it would be simple. and they basically are clogs, not playmakers, same as 4-3 DTs, just a thought.

  42. damnitall says: Jan 12, 2010 12:52 PM

    What happens to New Englands first round 2011 pick if the NFL doesn’t play? Gone? They traded Seymour for nothing?

  43. Legend says: Jan 12, 2010 12:53 PM

    bornman, Seymour has said he liked playing for the Raiders and is wide open to playing for them again.

  44. Brohamma says: Jan 12, 2010 12:58 PM

    Ok all you hammerheads! Please pay attention.
    The Patriots were NEVER going to be able to give Seymour the money he was going to be looking for AND take care of Wilfork! Getting a future 1st round pick, surely a top 10 one, for him was HUGE!!
    Pay attention to the bigger picture. The offseason here in 2010 is going to have implications on teams for many many years to come, finacially. This move was made with that fact in mind and is going to allow the Patriots alot of flexibility.

  45. BboyFiasco says: Jan 12, 2010 1:00 PM

    You better believe that Seymore would have made a difference vs Balt. If Seymore is there that run Ray Rice from Rutgers Does not happen. Watching the Pats get spanked was great.. That shows Belicheat and the Pats that its the players that win games not the coaching and scheme. There is no way the Raiders let Seymore walk away for nothing.. Expect the Franchise tag and maybe a trade for multiple 2011 picks. Either way RAIDERS win in the trade. How did Burgess pan out.. ask Ray Rice from Rutgers

    Wow, such moronic statements …. where to start with you?
    First, did you even WATCH that game or are you merely reacting to that score like these other a-holes?
    1) Seymour was far from effective this season. You idiiots all act like he was a King Kong All Pro this year. He wasn’t. As Belichick has so accurately calculated with so many players in the past (hello Deion Branch?), Seymour was on the decline and far from worth big bucks. Watch how few teams throw buckets of money at him, including the Raiders, who shouldn’t franchise his a$$ to the tune of $13 mil. Richard Seymour worth thirteen mil???? Are you on CRACK?
    2) Even if Seymour WERE the stud he used to be, that defense has more issues than just one impact player can fix.
    Try watching the games before you post stupid opinions like that, it pisses real fans off.
    By the way, Tom Brady has more than a couple of good years left. He’s barely thirty, and NFL quarterbacks regularly plat effectively into their late 30s or even early 40s, or haven’t you heard of guys like Elway, Favre, Testeverde? There is no “rush” to beat a window closing on Tom Brady, idiot.

    I hope Seymour gets out of that hellhole. I’m sure he would like to forget this past year ever happened.
    And the Pats show why they are consistently one of the best overall teams and franchises in the league. This pick they got from the Raiders will be a top ten (maybe top 5 if Oakland tries to stick with Russell) pick in 2011. I hate them, but they know what they are doing.

  53. tango says: Jan 12, 2010 1:12 PM

    Richard Seymour ! Good player and will help somomeone but he will leave Oakland as fast as Al Davis can draft another stud like JaJunk or DHB ! Patriots loving that #1 pick and Oakland still wallowing in their dysfuctional state !

  54. Bill Cowher's Chin says: Jan 12, 2010 1:14 PM

    Joe in Toronto’s statement, about the Raiders heading up, and everyone else’s team heading down, always amuses me.
    If you say the Raiders are on the way up, every year, eventually you will be right…………right? The teams on top eventually fall, and the teams on the bottom eventually end up on top….. Calling the Raiders a team on the rise isnt something I think is true at the moment, but that is why the NFL is great, no one really knows for sure, it is all opinion

    I think your the moron..Forget about watching the game… Unless you have game film… which you dont!! Look at the Pats Defensive stats and Rankings this year.. They have slipped in every category.. Seymore is not a big stat guy.. He takes up two blockers automatically.. that freed up guys like Wilfork and the many OLBs they plugged.. If you made the mistake to Double up on Wilfork then Seymore killed you. He still has a good 5 or 6 good years left.. I would take him now over any D.E drafted in the last 4 YEARS. With the exception of M williams and orakpo

  59. troy brown80 says: Jan 12, 2010 1:50 PM

    do you really think seymour wouldve transformed a 10-7 team into super bowl champs? there was no way the pats were going to be able to keep seymour once he hit free agency. thus keeping seymour would have only been worth it if it made them a serious contender for the championship. the trade got them exceptional compensation for a quickly aging player and cap flexibility in a year when several key players (wilfork, mankins, jarvis green, steve neal, faulk) are free agents.

  60. AutumnWind999 says: Jan 12, 2010 1:51 PM

    “With that said, the Patriots are likely very content to hold Oakland’s first-round pick in 2011. ”
    ——————-
    Sure. They’re content.
    That 1st-round pick two drafts from now helped them when they got run all over and embarrassed at home by the Ravens last Sunday. But hey, maybe they’ll get a talented player who can start helping them 3 seasons from now. Sure was a steal.
    Oh, and Oakland will sign or franchise Seymour. He’s not going anywhere unless a team like the Browns, who plays a 3-4 and are loaded with draft picks, offered up a nice trade package for him.

    Why would Dansby want to go from a GOOD team that is STILL in the playoffs, to one that has so many holes to fill PLUS won’t pay him what he is worth. Dream on, Pats loser fans, your team is on the way down, just like all the other teams that have had their day, leaving you all as empty-handed and empty-headed loudmouths. LMFAO!!!!!

  62. FireJerryJones says: Jan 12, 2010 1:59 PM

    Guy plays when he WANTS to… then punches the clock.
    He played like a monster his first game with the Raiders. No practice… two sacks on day 1.
    Two more all year.

  63. AutumnWind999 says: Jan 12, 2010 2:13 PM

    You Pats fans are laughable claiming this was a brilliant trade after watching your defense turn to mush this season.
    You just got DEMOLISHED in the playoffs in your own building by a team whose QB completed 4 passes for 34 yards and only even attempted 10 passes. Why? Because they ran all over your D. Think Seymour — one of the strongest D-Linemen in the league and arguably the best at holding the point of attack — might have made a difference in helping stop the run and at least make the Pasties competitive in that game?
    Oh no, I’m sure you’d much rather have a guy who may or may not ever pan out a couple of seasons from now than be marching on in this year’s playoffs.
    BTW, Randy Moss. The guy you “stole” from us. Well, the guy I saw on Sunday jogging down the field on his routes in the 4th Q is the same guy we saw every week in Oakland for two years, not the guy catching 20+ TD passes. The thing with Moss is he’s great if everything is going right and he’s looking good (ala the 2007 season). He’s completely useless at the first hint of adversity though. Maybe that’s why no one else was even willing to give up a 4th-round pick for his punk azz.

    “…Brady in his prime” is not applicable now. Even if last week hadn’t happened, he’s not in his prime. His prime was a couple of years ago and the arrogance of the organization has come back to bite them.

    welcome to the Baltimore Ravens. The guy in the middle is named Rayl. The big dude next to you is Haloti Ngata. Suggs is on the other side. How much you wanna bet your good for 12 sacks with this group.

    Haha really ..do you beat your kids with that mouth.
    Someone hasn’t gotten over the loss on sunday..haha were you in the stadium with the rest of your “real” fans booing Tom Brady….you have a lot of anger you should seek a little help
    1: Richard Seymor is not Deion branch
    2) Thier defense played a ton better last year with a lot less talent in the secondary. They didnt get any pressure or stop the run this year. Both strong suits of Seymor. I watch the pats all the time. seymor and Wilfork made your linebackers look really good. ..Mayo didnt seem as quick as he used to be while he was chasing ray rice down the sideline..haha
    3) Brady is not elway or farve. they are very different players. thats just silly they are very different players. When Brady was winning super bowls their defense was the tops in the league. Moss welker stallworth and Handycams made him an MVP candidate.
    Ill take a page from Rex s quote book we’ll see how it turns out.

    @BboyFiasco:
    You said Richard Seymour has “five or six more good years left”, and you’re calling ME a moron?
    In five or six years, Richard Seymour will be a bad memory in Oakland! He had a HANDFUL of sacks this year, and if you don’t think stats are an important part of a defensive end’s game, maybe you ought to stick to watching soccer.
    Seymour seldom commanded two men to block him, he wasn’t THAT talented, and in New England there were far too many other people for O lines to key on that they couldn’t give two men to Seymour.
    “Forget about watching the game” ????
    Are you SERIOUS, Dude??? Sure, why would watching the game on TV tell us anything, right? You have got to be the dumbest poster this week, commenting on a game YOU DIDN’T EVEN WATCH!!!!!!!!!!!
    Holy crap, Florio, where do you keep coming up with these IDIOTS?????

    Also one exclamation point or question mark would be correct. You keep putting five or six, I do not think that means what you think it means. You are funny, you’re probably a ball to hang out with..

    I would love to see the Packers sign him for two years, show Raji the ropes, and make him develop a little quicker.

    Giving Vrabel away was a lot worse. The Patriots will be back. Look at the recent superbowl winners and who they are playing this weekend. ha

    Richm2256, pull your pants up please and stop whining. You’re embarrassing yourself.

    Too bad, Seymour would make such a difference, just like he did on the Raiders. And in 2008 on the Patriots. And 2007. And 2006. And 2005…

    If by “back”, you mean back at the bottom of the division, then you would be correct. Face it, dead elvis, your team’s time is up. Time for all of you Pats bandwagoners, including rich the moron 2256, to go back into your closets.

    Better yet, Florio, how do you continue to let this self-important, knowitall, knownothing New England blowhard post here? It must be for the entertainment value, because I see no other value in letting him remain.

    Wow, such moronic statements …. where to start with you?
    First, did you even WATCH that game or are you merely reacting to that score like these other a-holes?
    1) Seymour was far from effective this season. You idiiots all act like he was a King Kong All Pro this year. He wasn’t. As Belichick has so accurately calculated with so many players in the past (hello Deion Branch?), Seymour was on the decline and far from worth big bucks. Watch how few teams throw buckets of money at him, including the Raiders, who shouldn’t franchise his a$$ to the tune of $13 mil. Richard Seymour worth thirteen mil???? Are you on CRACK?
    2) Even if Seymour WERE the stud he used to be, that defense has more issues than just one impact player can fix.
    Try watching the games before you post stupid opinions like that, it pisses real fans off.
    By the way, Tom Brady has more than a couple of good years left. He’s barely thirty, and NFL quarterbacks regularly plat effectively into their late 30s or even early 40s, or haven’t you heard of guys like Elway, Favre, Testeverde? There is no “rush” to beat a window closing on Tom Brady, idiot.
    ==================================
    Its fitting yoended your statement with idiot because it sums you up perfectly.
    first, yes i did watch the game. but we’re aholes because it brings us great joy to see you pats fans in such misery?
    1)” Seymour was far from effective this season.” and “As Belichick has so accurately calculated with so many players in the past (hello Deion Branch?), Seymour was on the decline and far from worth big bucks.”
    This is a joke. Seymour had 6 tackles and sacked Philip Rivers twice in his first game as a raider. pretty effective.
    If Belicheat has so accurately calculated with so many players in the past then why did he give Adalius Thomas $35 Million including 20 mil guaranteed? all he did was contribute 34 tackles and 3 sacks ALL YEAR along with a media headache for speaking out against his coach. I dont even know was seymours voice sounds like cause he is a team player.
    2)”Even if Seymour WERE the stud he used to be, that defense has more issues than just one impact player can fix.”
    agreed. Brandon Meriweather if he is an “impact player” was acquired with 1st rd pick for Deion Branch (hello deion branch?) was absolutely terrible in that destruction by the ravens.
    watch on
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OTd8NVrO3qI
    :15=terrible angle and pursuit (TD)
    :55=didnt put his hands on anybody (TD)
    1:25=missed tackle (TD)
    3:45=blocked by Nagota whose assignment was mayo but took meriweather out too cause he was just standing there doing nothing (TD)
    the best part isnt on there but on a 3rd down play towards the end of the game meriweather was fighting was kelly washington instead of trying to make the tackle on rice who got the first down. first take showed it this morning on espn. hilarious.
    “By the way, Tom Brady has more than a couple of good years left.

    Heres some research for you. These are the Qb’s who started at least a game this season who were drafted same year as brady or before.
    00-Pennington, Bulger, Brady
    99-mcnabb, culpepper
    98-Manning, Hasselbeck
    97-None
    96-None
    95-Collins
    next one is Favre (91)
    Warner and Delhomme undrafted. Warner didnt start until 99. delhomme 03.
    well Delhomme (4-7), Collins (0-6), Hasselbeck (5-9), Culpepper (0-5), Bulger (1-7), and Pennington (0-3) went a combined 10-37 and are thinking retirement. that leaves Favre, Warner, Manning, Mcnabb, Brady. Favre and Warner are both thinking retirement. That leaves Manning (33), Mcnabb (33), and Brady (32) as the only 3 qbs drafted in 00 or earlier who shouldnt retire due to performance or age this offseason. Theres only one favre, he has never missed a game. Testeverde? Get Real. Brady’s time is sooner rather than later.

    Wake up and smell the smegma, poofter Pats fans. The Pats are on the DECLINE, just like the Red Sox and soon to be the Celtics as well. It’s OVAH!!!!! LMFAO!!!!!

    @ Rex Ryan=Fat Twat.. Great post.. Great Name too…
    @ Rich the moron
    i guess teddy bruschi is an idiot too.. go back to watching Golf.
    @ Pats fans
    Forget the Seymour trade.. The pats screwed themselves when they got Moss.. I’ve said it since the day it went down that Moss would never get to win a Super Bowl.. He’s the Barry Bonds of the Nfl.. minus the Roids.. All the talent in the world + WORST attitude EVER = No Rings.. Belicheat saw glimpses of it this season and If hes smart hell ship his ass off asap.
