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.

    speaking of kickers, what’s up with all the disembodied shoes with feet in them washing up on B.C. shores?

    One pound side bacon…A dozen sausages…Loaf of thick-sliced toast…6 eggs sunny side up…One whole grapefruit…Bottle of Wild Turkey bourbon…Case of beer…One pitcher of bloody Mary…The morning papers…All partaken off in the nude on his deck.

    I think it also included a half dozen lime for random seasoning and 3 lines of the finest cocaine

    #1103: Saw a news special about that Lonetree. After bodies have been in the water for a while they become quite moagy and things start to separate. Fishies big and small also play a part snacking on the bodies. Maybe they don’t consider feet kosher…Lol.

    #1105: You know it Mark.
    #1106: Both of those items ring a bell Plunk. Good work.

    1106. Thats my kind of moderation.

    Not one for polls, but they have an interesting one going on the “worldwide leader” right now;

    Which team had the greatest pair of QBS:

    49ers (Montana, Young)

    Colts (Unitas, Manning)

    Packers (Starr, Favre)

    I chose the Colts; Montana may be better than Johnny U, but Peyton is better than Steve Young ever was. I don’t think the Starr/Favre combination is even in the same conversation.

    #1110: That was too cool. Saw the vid of it. Didn’t Johnny Depp fire it?
    Buddy of mine wants the Viking funeral…Put him on a raft, torch it and push him out into the lake…We offered to do it while he’s still alive.

    1111. Colts

  • edward teach

    I’m sure folks can think of others, but I’d take Aikman and Staubach over Favre and Starr any day.

  • CanuckRaider

    #1111: I’ll go Colts too for the same reason as ET stated. Big Sky was the ultimate winner though…Ice water in those veins.

  • CanuckRaider

    Plunkett and Stabler have to get an honorable mention anyway.

    no marajuanavich & jawalrus in that list?

    Different poll. That one involves Tim Couch and Brady Quinn, and Akili Smith and David Klingler.

    #1118: The Ohio Ooops?

  • CanuckRaider

    Well, I’m out for now. The mention of JaJumbo makes me want to curl up in the fetal position in the dark. Should be okay by morning.

    No kidding. Hard to believe that six of the biggest QB busts in NFL history belong to three teams.

    You know your in the hood when you see the shoes in the telephone wires.

    What the heck. I see that out in the country in farmin towns. Its a national epidemic. My favorite is a great big honkin pair of loggin boots cuz u know whoever did that really had to huck’em. Tennis shoes are a dime a dozen.

    And BTW, when we win the supper bowl, the new national sports craze will be everyone sportin Marks hair doo.

    Raiders restructure contracts of Richard Seymour, Michael Huff and Carson Palmer.

    Palmer restructures contratc along with Huff and Seymour

    No worries. Bush will be retained by the Raiders. We’ll have the best 1-2 punch of any backfield in the NFL. We’re also going to have the best WR corps with a QB that can get them the ball. And with the new defensive GM and the new defensive HC, we’ll be in the top 5 rankings on defense. Hell yeah!

  • Are we so sure Jason Campbell is gone? What GM in the world wouldn’t want him as a legit #2. I say we’ve already sealed the deal to keep him. Has Boeller packed up and moved on yet? Smart money says he has been long gone.

    In addition to FS Michael Huff and DL Richard Seymour, Raiders QB Carson Palmer has restructured his contract.

  • The only thing that worries me is HueJax has a lot of pull and could influence some of our top guys his way. Or make a trade for CP3. He could even negotiate for Moore. That would be awful losing him. He may go after DMAC, DHB or even Wiz2. Doubt Lechler and Seabass would go.

  • hwnrdr

    So Ray, I just saw that somewhere also…are we under?

  • Just say no to PM. He’s had his glory in the sun, but I worry for him because one fierce blow to his head and he could become immobile. Don’t want to see that happen to one of the classiest QBs’ ever to play the game.

  • raiderlization

    Funny how people get a chance to post and end up posting something totally untrue. The Spokesman for the project said that the City had set the money aside and his words were “we do have the Money!” Why Mislead with untrue remarks! Oakland will build a Complex and it wont be due to lying about it! See Santa Clara! LOL!

    I don’t think we’re under yet….I see us making a couple more cuts and maybe another restructure or two.
