    Wow, thats huge, why would they do something like this? I know to get younger but whose going to replace Seymour at DE this season... are they really that unconfident that they will win big this year?

      What a typical Patriots move..2011 1st? I'd be surprised if he's still in Oakland heading into that season.

        This is one way for the Raiders to get the DT they need though I guess.

            Surprising move to say the least. omgz. a first round pick of the raiders means a high pick I presume.

              woah, didn't see that coming... Good move by the Raiders but the Patriots missed on this one IMO.

                Wow, surprising.

                Just what the Pats need, a top 10 pick in 2011.

                  Wow, this is a suprise, but its a good move on the Raiders part. But is he worth a 1st rounder? And who will be replacing him? Ron Brace?

                    this is surprising and a pretty big move. that's gonna be a high pick though. another time where they'll end up with a high pick and get another Mayo calibur player early in the 1st.

                      That's just it - we cut Seymour to save money so we can pay an unproven rookie more?

                      This offseason has been a nightmare.

                        Well, I wouldn't assume it will be a high pick. A lot can happen in two years, and the Raiders defense continues to improve. If the Raiders come out next year with a solid draft, it could be a mid round pick and be worth it for them.

                          This move would look even better if they took Raji instead of Heyward-Bey.

                          I guess this takes them out of the Gerald McCoy sweepstakes though

                            Jbond, you know Al Davis is still running them, right?

                            I mean I do like their D a lot right now, a lot is riding on Jamarcus though. Who knows? We all rip on the Raiders but something could happen. They've got a good D and a very good group of RB's and a QB with potential. We'll see though

                              I'm stunned, and yet, not. There's been talk of more 4-3 looks, and with the contracts up in 2010, it makes some sense. That said, Seymour was still a leader for this defensive unit, particularly with all that older guys moving on. As we've seen from BB though, he'll cut who he wants and live with it. I imagine we'll see Jarvis Green step in, who should be alright, and when they show 4-3 looks, it'll be Green/Burgess on the edges. They are trying to remake themselves on the fly, without losing a step. It'll be interesting to see if it works.
