Snow Job Revenge?

Richard Seymour has been sent the five-day letter & if he doesn’t report by Tuesday the Raiders can put him on left club list and he is done for 2009. His final contract year will be pushed to 2010.

Provided the Raiders put Seymour on this list, his rights remain with the Raiders next season.

However, the trade with the Patriots still hinges on him reporting AND passing his physical.

So theoretically the Raiders could invalidate the trade one year from now if Seymour fails said physical.

Seymour would lose his year for not reporting and Pats would be forced to take a 31-year-old Seymour back along with the final year of hisdeal.

This is not likely, but an interesting gray area that is within the CBA rules.

Because of this unlikey but possible scenerio the NFL really needs to step in and clarify the issue, even if the CBA affords no clarity.

Leave it to the Raiders to prompt a future rule/CBA change.

Seymour isn’t making friends in the locker room and I’ve talked to plenty of Raiders fans that would rather he not be on the team.

I’d be likely to agree with them if we didn’t need his services so badly along the defensive line.

  • Have to give a guy 3 years, people. Especially a guy that has played only 1/2 of a season. Not looking good, but still time.
