Richard Seymour placed on IR

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

The Raiders have placed Richard Seymour on IR, almost surely ending Seymour's tenure in Oakland.

Richard Seymour has missed the last 7 games with a hamstring injury and the Raiders finally put him on IR. His contract will be up at the end of this season where he will then become an unrestricted free agent.

Seymour came to the Raiders in 2008 at the height of the Dark Days. He helped lead this team back to respectability in his four years here, even if they have regressed again this season.

If this is indeed the end of Richard Seymour's tenure in Oakland he will finish with 139 combined tackles, 18.5 sacks, 1 forced fumble and 1 fumble recovered as a Raider. He also will have provided many Raiders fans with the unforgettable image of him laying out Ben Roethlisberger.

Seymour was going to be under contract for next year but he failed to meet achievements required of him. His failure to meet the contract requirements will result in his contract being voided.

It is valid to wonder if he will ever play again, but even if he does it probably won't be in the Silver and Black. His roster spot has yet to be designated elsewhere but it likely will be somebody from the practice squad being promoted.
