Big deal for Seymour

Former Patriot Richard Seymour signs big-time deal with Raiders.

The Deal:
Former Patriots star Richard Seymour is about to be a very rich man. ESPN.com and SI.com reported yesterday that he and the Raiders have come to an agreement on a two-year contract extension that will make him the highest-paid defensive player in the NFL.

Analysis:
This is a clear overpay on Al Davis’ end, but what choice does he have? Seymour would command a massive price on the free-agent market, and the Raiders are still smarting from what they gave New England for him. The Pats will enjoy the 17th pick in this year’s draft as part of the deal.

Seymour’s massive new contract might reduce the Raiders’ chances of keeping Nnamdi Asomugha in silver and black. The CB’s big deal was voided after he failed to meet
performance incentives.
