  49ers | Two signed    Tue Dec 10, 06:59 PM

The San Francisco 49ers signed OG Ryan Seymour (Seahawks) and WR Devon Wylie (Seahawks) Tuesday, Dec. 10.

Footballguys view: The 49ers/Seahawks rivalry continues here. They have been poaching players the other team has cut in recent weeks.

  NFL | Richard Seymour receiving interest    Sun Oct 6, 11:26 AM

Free-agent DT Richard Seymour (Raiders) has received interest from the San Francisco 49ers, Detroit Lions and Atlanta Falcons but has not agreed to a deal at this point. He said he is open to signing with a contending team by Week 10 if it is a situation he and his wife agree on. Seymour was never able to come close to a financial agreement with the 49ers when they expressed interest.

  Patriots | Richard Seymour not interested in joining team    Mon Sep 30, 04:05 PM

Free-agent DT Richard Seymour (Raiders) said he is not interested in signing with the New England Patriots.

Footballguys view: The Patriots need to explore all option with Vince Wilfork out for the year due to an Achilles' injury. It sounds like Seymour is not going to be an option at this time.

  NFL | Richard Seymour not ruling out retirement    Tue Jun 25, 02:24 PM

Free-agent DT Richard Seymour (Raiders) said he doesn't have any regrets about his career and would be fine with retiring if he isn't signed by a team this offseason. Seymour said he could have signed with a team if he wanted to by now, but he'll only do so if he receives the right offer. The Atlanta Falcons are closely tied to his services.

Footballguys view: We think Seymour ends up playing this year. The Falcons may be the best fit for him as most think he won't end up back with the Patriots. Seymour's price tag is a bit high right now but perhaps the price will drop as we get into training camp.

  Falcons | No deal with Richard Seymour imminent    Sun Jun 16, 11:53 AM

Free-agent DT Richard Seymour (Raiders) said he has not been able to reach a contract agreement with the Atlanta Falcons. Seymour is still open to signing with the Falcons.

Footballguys view: No hurry with this situation. Seymour's price might be too high for the Falcons at this time. We'll see if the two sides can come to an agreement before the start of training camp.

  Falcons | Not close to signing Richard Seymour    Mon Jun 3, 12:58 PM

The Atlanta Falcons are in no rush to sign free-agent DT Richard Seymour (Raiders), and the two sides have 'nothing at this point.' Last week it was reported that the Falcons were the team most interested in Seymour. He is considering retirement, though, so he won't come back cheaply.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Seymour's price tag will come down the longer the team waits. The Falcons have about $6MM in cap space right now and signing Seymour at this time would eat up a big chunk of that.

  Falcons | Could be waiting for June to sign Richard Seymour    Tue May 28, 08:18 AM

Updating previous reports, the Atlanta Falcons could be waiting until June 1 to sign free-agent DL Richard Seymour (Raiders). They have just $1.8 million in cap space, but that will rise to $6.3 once OL Tyson Clabo's salary comes off the books June 1.

Footballguys view: The Falcons will have more cap space once June 1st cuts go through. Seymour has stated that he's considered retirement, but we feel the Falcons will make a move here. He'll help their revamped front four on the defensive line and give them more veteran leadership on the defensive side.

  Falcons | No serious talks with Richard Seymour    Fri May 24, 02:32 PM

Updating a previous report, the Atlanta Falcons expressed interest in free-agent DT Richard Seymour (Raiders) in the past, but the two sides have not had serious contract talks.

Footballguys view: The Falcons are doing their due diligence here. Things may heat up between the two sides as we get closer to training camp.

Free-agent DT Richard Seymour (Raiders) said that he definitely wants to continue playing in 2013. Seymour will likely be signed by a team just prior to training camp.

  Falcons | Richard Seymour could be option after June 1    Mon May 6, 01:32 PM

The Atlanta Falcons could consider pursuing free-agent DT Richard Seymour (Raiders) after June 1 because they will have an extra $4.5 million in salary cap to work with since OT Tyson Clabo was designated a June 1 cut.

Footballguys view: We could see several veteran additions (and subtractions) after June 1st. Seymour would help the Falcons interior pass rush and overall strength on the defensive line.

  Broncos | Could look at three defensive players    Thu Mar 14, 01:05 PM

The Denver Broncos could show interest in free-agent DE Dwight Freeney (Colts), DT Richard Seymour (Raiders) and LB Connor Barwin (Texans) this offseason.

Footballguys view: The Broncos are in 'Super Bowl or Bust' mode and have been very active in free agency. Adding any one of those three players would make a lot of sense. They also have to decide whether or not to keep DE Elvis Dumervil.

  NFL | Two teams in on Richard Seymour    Tue Mar 12, 05:38 PM

Free-agent DL Richard Seymour (Raiders) is getting interest from the Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos, and is expected to get interest from more teams as free agency continues.

Footballguys view: Both teams would be good fits for Seymour. He still has plenty left in the tank and can be an impact player with position versatility on the D-Line.

  Raiders | Richard Seymour will count against cap    Wed Feb 13, 02:28 PM

Oakland Raiders DT Richard Seymour will count $13.714 million in dead money next season even though his contract was voided last week.

Footballguys view: We believe in Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie, but the Al Davis regime has really left him with a huge hole to dig out of before the franchise gets going in a positive direction.

Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said Friday, Dec. 14, that both SS Tyvon Branch (ankle, neck) and DT Richard Seymour (hamstring) will be evaluated before the Week 15 game Sunday, Dec. 16, and a decision on their availability will be made at that time.

Footballguys view: Jamaal Charles already had a good matchup. This development could make him even better against a defense that gives up big plays in bunches.
