Joseph returns

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Thursday, September 10th, 2009 at 6:03 pm in Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders re-signed defensive tackle William Joseph, protecting themselves against the probability of Richard Seymour not joining the team before the season opener Monday night against the San Diego Chargers.

Will have more from the open locker room session as well as a post-practice update from coach Tom Cable, who isn’t scheduled to meet the media until 9:15 p.m. or later.

    seymour would be a hero in the nfl if he sits and refuses to be a raider, he would be my hero thats for sure,…maybe someday when all players refuse to play in oakland, well then maybe we will get the change we need. oh snap.

    seymour is a punk. i hope he stays with the cheaters and we get a guy who wants to be here. ahole players like that dont deserve squat.

    But, but sitting out this year, Seymour might still be able to get the 6 mill New England may owe him and still get the 3.7 mill from the Raiders or somebody else next year.

    It’s like we had Seymour since January, Seymour gets injured and out for the season, we get his rights for the next two years, and it cost the Raiders 0 Million Dollars this year, and maybe 3.7 next year.

  • raiderkoolaid

    Biz Markie, it might make him your hero and also the hero of many Raider haters, but it would also cost him 3.7 million dollars this year and possibly tens of millions down the road that he might make in future years because his contract would still be in force for the future. If he could come to an agreement with The Raiders it could be win/win for both sides, but no agreement would be loose/loose.
