Description: According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Raiders coach Tom Cable is concerned about DE Richard Seymour's hamstring, but notes that "it's still early".

Description: Raiders DL Richard Seymour took a swing at Ben Roethlisberger's head after a touchdown pass and has been ejected.

Description: Jerry McDonald of Bay Area News Group believes Richard Seymour is playing as well as any Raiders defensive lineman since Howie Long in the 1980s, reports the Oakland Tribune.
Insight: Seymour is on pace to set a career-high in tackles in addition to a double-digit sack total. According to McDonald, he's been "absolutely dominant". If it weren't for Clay Matthews, Seymour would definitely be getting some looks for defensive player of the year. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: Richard Seymour is working primarily as a defensive tackle so far at Raiders camp.
Insight: Seymour wasn't all that effective at the end position, either, but a move to defensive tackle will knock his IDP value even further down. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: NFL Network's Jason La Canfora confirms that the Raiders are "unlikely" to extend Richard Seymour's contract before Thursday's deadline for franchise players to do so.

Insight: Seymour's four sacks in 2009 was not what Al Davis was expecting when he traded a first-round pick to the Patriots. Set to earn over $12 million this year, Seymour is going to have to have a big year if he wants another payday next offseason.

Description: Raiders re-signed "exclusive rights" franchise player Richard Seymour to a one-year, $12.398 million contract.
Insight: The Raiders were starting to make so many intelligent moves, it's almost a relief that something like this comes along to restore your faith in the balance of the world. Seymour is not worth even a third of this contract. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Coach Tom Cable revealed Friday that the Raiders are in discussions about a long-term contract with franchise player Richard Seymour.
Insight: The Raiders didn?t learn their lesson about trading with the Patriots in the Randy Moss fiasco and are now being burned by the fact that they gave up a first round pick for Seymour. They would only be compounding their mistake by giving the uninspired player a long term deal so you can fully expect for that to happen. (SportsBuff.com)
