Tom Cable may not know what his future holds, but by the sound of it, one of his players seems to have a handle on his prospects.
Richard Seymour told WEEI radio in Boston that he enjoyed his time with the Raiders this season, has talked with Al Davis about re-signing in Oakland because he loves the "challenge" and would not return to New England.
"I am in a unique situation where obviously I played out my contact and I have done my time there," Seymour said. "I talked with Mr. Davis before I left and he said he would be getting in touch with my agent to try and work a deal out. How that works out, you know it's the business; it's always give and take on both sides as far as contract negotiations.
"I would like to re-sign out in Oakland because I think when you can become a foundation piece and help turn an organization around, I mean that's a challenge to me," he added. "That's something where I am willing to take on that responsibility and that challenge. You know, help being part of the beginning with some good guys that really can make a difference.
"I mean, I really enjoy putting on that silver and black. As a player, you know, a lot of the guys I have talked to in the league say, 'Oh, man, the uniforms and the mystique of the Raiders,' you know, just being a nasty, hard-hitting team. As a defender that's something that I really enjoy. Will it happen, I don't know? I really don't know, but if they came up to me with a deal and said, 'Hey, this is what we are trying to do and you will be a foundation piece,' I don't have a problem signing back with Oakland."
