    Aso has already been signed to a multi-year extension. You can bet your bottom dollar that Al Davis will franchise tag Seymor if they don't extend his contract. I really don't think it will come to that - Al Davis has never been a cheapskate when it comes to players (obviously). He is known to lowball the hell out of his coaches (or not pay them at all).

    I was wondering who was going to be a FA this year for them. We'll probably see some scrambling to re-sign some of those guys halfway through the season. Probably pay Aso 135 million over 6 months or something. I can never figure out how they can afford to pay a handful of guys so much and stay under the cap. They must have about 48 guys making the minimum.
    It would seem so wouldn't it? I think they already resigned one of them, I just can't remember who.

    You are correct. They can franchise him. Doesn't that leave one of their young defensive players uprotected though? It seems as though a couple of them are in contract years...(Morrison, Thomas, Aso?)

    not really the point I was making. I didn't say he only had one year left. I said the Raiders would only get him for one year likely, meaning he probably won't resign with them....

    Uhh not really, D-lineman can play well into their 30's. I'd say he at least has 4-6 good seasons in him.

    Unfair in which way?

    The Bronos are getting a good young player at the begging of his career.

    The Raiderettes are getting an aged player, who is still good, at the end of his career for what is very likely only one year.

    I am pretty sure I read somewhere that Oakland cannot redo his deal during the season. It insinuated that basically it is a foregone conclusion that he will become an UFA.

    That doesn't mean Oakland wont find a way to pay him but I do think he will be able to test the market i.e. no tags.

    It will be interesting to see if he would be interested in joining Belichek junior and NE West.

    As good as Seymour is. the dude is getting old and is asking for way to much money. Yes he is good but do you want to pay a guy who has been in the nfl for 8 or 9 years who has maxed out his potential and it is all down hill from now, anything over 4 million a year. Hes asking for around 7ish i believe.

    That first round pick to NE could possibly be the best first round draft pick in YEARS with the new rookie pay scale in 2011.

    Besides we have Smith locked up for peanuts compared to Seymour.

    Dlineman don't age well.

    Sorry, but there is absolutely no way that Al Davis will let Seymour hit FA. He's crazy but not that crazy. He'll tag him if he has too and would never trade him to the Broncos. I won't be surprised if AD signs him to a huge 3-4 year contract.. And if he continues to play like that, then I have no problem with it..
    I hadn't thought of it that way, but you're right. Davis will franchise him if he won't re-sign. The Broncos have about a 0% chance of getting him next year.

    Wilfork, on the other hand, could be had, but he'll be expensive. I doubt that NE overspends on him, so he'll probably walk.

    Seymour played well last night I'm sure Oakland didn't give up a 2011 1st rounder for a one year player, although it's Oakland so who knows. I agree with the other posters weather I'd want him in Denver next year would depend on how our D line performs this year.

    I have always thought that We spent so little this offseason to make a run at Seymour, and Wolfork
