Raiders trade for Seymour

remember seymour is going to play DT

raiders run a 4-3

pats of course run a 3-4

However, he is in a contract year and may put up huge numbers to get paid
interesting, pats get a top 10 pick imo
Not the brightest move by the Raiders. More than likely they'll have a very high 1st round pick next season. Patriots have been making out like bandits with these trades lately.
Idiots.
WTF?

Is that report correct? It says 2011 draft pick, not 2010.

He was a 4-3 DT in college and his first 2 years in the NFL before the Pats moved to the 3-4 Defense. He still played DT in nickel situations since the move to the 3-4 base.

f**kING WOW. Great f**king move by Oakland, Seymour and Ellis should certainly help that front 7 vs both the run and pass.

You're not taking into account that Seymore is in the last year of his contract, which means that the Patriots can get Seymore back next year after he realizes that "the grass isn't always greener on the other side".


The draft pick in in 2011 so the Raiders still have a 1st rounder next year and they have the option of franchising him if they can't resign him to a long term deal. At that point they could always trade him if he refuses to play for them.

That's cause there are teams stupid enough to offer these kind of deals..

They do "come on top" usually, but their high draft picks have been questionable at best, and haven't played up to par with what they would expect from top 10 picks. It almost seems like the Patriots use a Billy Beane theory in using their high draft picks to trade down for more of them. Too bad most of those low picks have not played up to par.

Btw, the Raiders don't even play a 3-4, guess it wouldn't be too big of a move bringing him into the inside. I wonder when he sees the field.

They can franchise if they so chose, however they can't trade a player who isn't under contract!!!

I don't understand why the Patriots would trade away Richard Seymour when they're trying to win the championship THIS YEAR.

Sure they will win out in the long term with the 1st rounder.

But it makes their team that much weaker for this season.

False

The Raiders can trade him even after he signs the tender.

See: Matt Cassel

Yeah, this is where i'm at. On Defense, the Patriots now have 2 quality players in Mayo and Wilfork. Yeah there is some talent here and there, but they are significantly weaker today.

EDIT: I forgot about Thomas, but still

And if the Raiders can sign Seymour to a long term contract, then they got better.

I don't think this deal is as bad for the Raiders as people are thinking.
