Seymour Receives The Franchise Tag

In a move that surprises no one, Raiders Defensive End Richard Seymour will be given the franchise tag designation. He will make just above $12 million in 2011 if the Raiders and Seymour don’t come to terms on a long-term deal.

I think Davis will come to terms with Seymour, because he will want to hold on to the player he traded a 2011 first-round pick for until at least 2011 and probably for as many as 5 seasons.

Seymour is a class act and the best defensive lineman on the Raiders roster. Seymour will be 30 this year, but a 35 year-old lineman isn’t that much of an issue. Plenty of interior line players play well into their mid-thirties.

In other news, the combine is starts today with weigh-ins and test. There is sure to be a ton of action on twitter, so follow me @Raidersblog for news and updates. I’ll bring periodic Raider-centric combine updates on the blog as well.
