Raiders Trade For Patriots DL Richard Seymour

Was asleep and Banks sent me a text that read:

Richard seymore congrats

Still sleepy, football the last thing on my mind, i quickly replied:

Hope he got something in the tank left

After waking up and finally getting on the computer, i'm able to assess the trade better.

i'm 50/50.

On one hand, we let a 2011 first round draft pick, a pick that could be potentially high, for a 29 going on 30 year old vet who is in the last year of his contract. Did i mention injury problems? Well, that too.

On the other side of the coin, we address our defense, specifically the DL where we've sucked ass for a long time. He's proven, so that's a plus. It looks like our DL is shaping up to be quite formidable (at least on paper) with Ellis and Warren and Kelly there. Hell, the addition of Seymour could make those guys better (i hope).

It still remains to be seen. I want to see us stop the run and stun the league on Monday night with a W against the rival dolts. If we can then improve over the season, maybe get a winning record this season... then yea, it's worth getting Seymour. Welcome to the Silver & Black!
