Seymour saga keeps getting weirder (updated)

Yesterday, Tom Cable said that he had spoken with Richard Seymour and had been told that Seymour wants to be a Raider. Cable then went on to say that issues with the Patriots are holding things up, though he didn't say whether that was told to him by Richard or not. The Patriots promptly denied it and since the transaction had gone out on the official league wire and no one at the NFL had any idea what Cable was talking about, it seemed he was wrong. But now the Boston Herald is reporting this: "According to a league source, the hangup appears to be a financial one with the Patriots" ...which would appear to vindicate Cable's statement. The writer also says that Seymour is still in Massachusetts, which contradicts reports that he would be reporting for a physical today. Never a dull moment here in Oakland UPDATE: Steve Corkran of the San Jose Mercury is reporting the following: "A person close to Seymour said that the five-time Pro Bowl selection was caught off guard by the news he had been traded to the Raiders and needed time to sort out his emotions." That makes sense. Seymour probably had no idea this was coming and being told that you have to ship out across the country after playing your whole career for one team has to be tough to handle. I hope he doesn't need more than a day to sort himself out though; we've got a big game Monday we need him for. If he's not taking his physical tomorrow and on the field Thursday, we'll be in trouble Another interesting quote from the article: "He's got to get here," one Raiders player said. "We need him. I don't care if he's mad. Maybe that will make him play even better." Read the whole thing here: http://www.mercurynews.com/raiders/ci_13287992
