Richard Seymour seems ready to call it a career without right offer


Richard Seymour has spent 12 seasons in the NFL playing for the Oakland Raiders and New England Patriots. He’s one of only four players on PFT’s Top 100 Free Agents list to still not have a place to play for the 2013 season.

However, Seymour appears at peace with his NFL career if he doesn’t ultimately find a team to play for this year.

Seymour joined Bruce Murray and Rich Gannon on Sirius XM NFL radio on Tuesday afternoon to discuss where he stands in trying to find a home for next season.

For Seymour, he’s not just looking for any team willing to offer him a job. He wants to find the right offer for him. Seymour said that if he wanted to sign with a team he already could have. Seymour wants to play for a team that has a chance to contend for a championship.

“You always want to be at the top. I don’t play just to be on a team. You always want to be able to contend,” Seymour said.

If he doesn’t get the deal he wants, Seymour seems willing to walk away and call it a career.

“I’ve been fortunate and blessed and have no regrets about anything in terms of my career. I gave everything that I had when I played. If it’s time to more to another chapter, obviously I’ve been blessed and fortunate in that regard,” Seymour said.
