In what could be the end of his run with the Raiders, Richard Seymour has been placed on injured reserve, according to Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times.
Seymour had missed the previous seven games with a hamstring injury, and hadn’t practiced this week.
The Raiders gave up a first-round pick for him in 2009, but that was a previous regime, one which mistakenly thought they were a part or two away from contending (unless one of those parts was Tom Brady) and made short-sighted moves.
The 33-year-old Seymour will be a free agent this offseason, and when asked earlier this month about his plans, replied: “I would love to retire a Raider but I have earned the right to be a free agent.”
That doesn’t sound like a man who’s thinking about putting down roots.
