Report: Seymour, Huff restructured

The Raiders have begun to whittle away at their salary cap issues by reportedly restructuring the contracts of defensive tackle Richard Seymour and free safety Michael Huff.

According to Mac’s Football Blog, an independent outlet run by Brian McIntyre, who is well-sourced among agents and NFL teams in financial matters, Seymour dropped his base salary to the league minimum ($925,000) and converted the remaining $6,575 million to a guaranteed roster bonus for cap purposes.

Huff’s salary dropped to $700,000, moving additional money into a bonus structure that would drop his cap number from $9.828 million to $3.988 million.

The Raiders, according to various reports, have been anywhere from $10 million to $20 million over the salary cap and have committed $6.2 million to Tyvon Branch by virtue of the franchise tag.

The Raiders must still resolve the matter of linebacker of Kamerion Wimbley, due $6.5 million in guaranteed money and $4.5 million in salary this season. Quarterback Carson Palmer, due $12.5 million in salary, is a candidate for restructure who could help the Raiders easily get under a salary cap projected at approximately $120 million.

    3) The Pat’s are great because they gain more performance and pay less.
    >>>>

    1) Kinda sick of the kicking Al in the grave garbage… whats done is done.

    2) How many SB rings did NE win without Seymour?? How many WITH Seymour?

    You don’t keep getting rid of your team leaders without consequences… NE might have won an extra ring with him still playing there…

    Wimbley, not so much.
    So thus the reports that he will be cut like Len proposes. Not hard to imagine…
    >>>>

    I’m guessing the only way he stays is if he agrees to a very long term deal with hardly any money in salary this year. Which means as Cork kept saying… we shall see how much he wants to remain a Raider.

    He knows he can just scoop up the rest of his guaranteed money from the raiders and sign somewhere else on top of it like Routt did…

    I think he is toast here…
    ———————————
    He’ll scoop the money for sure.

    I don’t blame Him…It IS business.

    If I get to be a GM, I don’t pay that type of money to Kam Wimbley.

    We know who he is, and It isn’t 11 large per yr.

    I’ll trust Reggie to find a better “slotted” replacement.

    If Wimbley doesn’t want to be specifically a Raider and wishes to hire himself out to whichever John has the fattest wallet then he should be told to go walk the street corner (his $6.5 mill guaranteed will allow him to buy the hottest tranny outfit he can find).

  • JLofty

    Gdog, folks gunna kick until what he did is undone. Going to be a few years before that is in the rear-view. Kind of the price to pay when choosing what the legendary Al Davis chose: be an 82yo man in declining health trying to run a multi-billion $$$ company with LITTLE help.

    Call dick and tell him to get it done?

    Or did you just speculate like so many others?

    Carson Lamonica likely wants this to be his final NFL gig. He’ll make it work.

    Your post comes across as though you had predicted something before it was public knowledge of what most had (later) read.

  • M Lonetree

    yes, I read Dakota’s source post. Fine by me. Carson is one in a million. Peyton is one in a billion.

    Raider Len, you must remember that the South Dakota State Jackrabbits just made the NCAA tourney so in the minds of Hot Springs, S.D. anything is probable.

  • Marks hair

    But, Just Fire, I just polished off a double cheeseborger with swiss & bacon with Jo jos (compliment of Bob’s Burgers. Beats Red robbin every time), two Red Stripes & two double chocolate chip cookies. Now I’m eyeing the second installment of my subway tuna, jalepeno sandwich with tomatoes, dijon, mayonnnase & parmesan cheese. And I’m just warming up.

    Like I said; worst eating habits in the world. . .by the truckload (I’m disgusting @ a ballgame. My Giants visit Seattle to play the Mariners in June. Three games. The concession food alone will set me back about $300 bucks. . .and that’s because the girlfriend will only run me about 20 bucks a game. . .

    We actually have an offense now, so a couple of million dollar a piece kickers should do just fine.
