How coach Tom Cable addressed the Richard Seymour trade following practice:
Cable: Real quickly about the Richard Seymour issue. We have attempted to make a deal. There are some issues still between him and the Patriots that are being worked out. Hoping that will be resolved as quickly as possible. We know that the player wants to be here, but we have no control really over those issues. That’s really all I’m going to talk about it for now.
Q: Can you tell us how you know he wants to be here? Have you spoken with him?
Cable: I have talked to him.
Q: So he said he wants to be here?
Q: Is there a day you have to have him by to play in the opener?
Cable: As soon as possible. That’s really the only way to answer that right now.
