Yeah, he’s far removed from the often-dominate player he was with the Patriots, but at 33 we’re pretty sure Richard Seymour probably has a little gas left in the tank.

He played just eight games for the Raiders last season, but still turned in three sacks. He’s 6-6 and 317, which is the prototype for what the Packers want at defensive end.

Would you take six sacks in 2013 from Seymour? I think so.

And don’t tell me opposing offenses wouldn’t game plan for the Packers defensive line for the first time since it included Reggie White.

Even if Seymour is just a situational pass rusher, he’s worth a look.

Seymour, Raji and Neal on passing downs? With Clay Matthews and Nick Perry or Dezman Moses coming from the outside? Tell me, who are you double teaming?

Before your panties get too wet about that scenario, there’s a problem. Seymour reportedly wants big money and we all know Ted’s butthole puckers up real tight when anyone asks him to take out his wallet.

He’s the guy who conveniently has to go to the bathroom just before the check arrives.

Still, the longer Seymour remains unsigned, the lower his price will go. This is the type of move that says we’re competing this year. It would take some balls. Unfortunately, we’re pretty sure the organization is currently staffed by eunuchs.

    Three castoffs that their own teams don’t even want.

    I have three other names for you- Curly, Moe and Larry. We should be just as interested in those guys.

    Monty writes like TT and MM stumbled into a Super Bowl title like Uncle Jed stumbled onto oil.

    Really, bro, you are aware you are blogging about the Packers, right? Not the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Just checking.

    Sometimes you just don’t know.

    In 2010 we got a big, fat contributor named Howard Green that was cast-away from the Jets.

    Yeah, Monty – don’t you know the Packers were 15-1 a few years ago and now have nothing to prove any season here on out?

    Iltarion, you are a turd.

    Thanks for highlighting the obvious, my guess is they will wait to see who falls to them at.pick 26 first. Then, if they don’t feel the DL positions have been addressed fully, they’d pick up another body. I agree stopping the run should be the priority, its our Achilles heel and leads to other teams keeping up,with our 27-32 ppg range. I hope they grab Seymour but I’d be ok with Pouha as well as insurance to stop the run.

    The Packers need to do something with the defensive line. I still believe in draft and develop and then using free agency to sign value players to fill holes.

    As for Chris Canty, it probably had something to do with his knee.

    “According to an NFL source, the #Packers didn’t like what they saw of Canty’s knee and passed on him. Others thought the knee was fine.”
