Seymour gets a bump. Should be in camp soon...

It's being reported that The Pats have come to a contract agreement with training camp holdout Richard Seymour. The Pats are going to give Seymour a bump in pay, increasing his base salary by about 2 mil. It's expected that Richard will report to camp within the next few days.

Although this is not the long term deal that Seymour was hoping for, it does at least get him in the same ballpark as other top-paid defensive linemen. Hopefully with Seymour now back in the fold for this year, The Pats will eventually be able to come to a long term deal with him that makes him happy and keeps him in a Patriots uniform for many years to come.

Personally, I'm just glad this little spat is overwith and Seymour will be on the field for The Pats soon. Bitching about player contracts and salaries is no fun. It takes away from the enjoyment of the game. I want to talk about Richard Seymour, The Football Player, not Richard Seymour, The Employee. Now with the $$$ problems out of the way, we can get down to thinking about straight up football and what's happening on the field. Thank you!

In other Patriot news, Charlie Weis stopped by to visit training camp recently. I think it's cool that Charlie is visiting the guys at The Pats camp. I've read lots of quotes from various offensive players talking about how they're moving on without Weis, but it seems there is always a slight hint of saddness there when they talk about how things are a lot quieter on the field now, with a lot less swearing, etc now that Weis is gone. You can tell Charlie is missed. I'm sure it gives all the players that miss him a lift to see Weis at Camp.

It's hard to believe the 1st pre-season game is next Friday!
