Some of Richard Seymour‘s best seasons were spent as a member of the New England Patriots. But don’t expect him back in a Patriots uniform anytime soon.
Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork suffered a season-ending Achilles injury on Sunday night, leading to speculation that Seymour could be fit for a return. As it turns out, he’s not in the least bit interested, according to Ron Borges of the Boston Herald.
When asked about even the possibility of a return to the Patriots on Monday, Seymour responded with a laugh and simply said “no way.”
Seymour, 33, is a seven-time Pro Bowler and five-time All-Pro selection. He spent his first eight seasons with the Patriots, winning three Super Bowls, after they selected him sixth overall in the 2001 NFL draft. He recorded 496 tackles and 57.5 sacks in his 12-year NFL career, the final years of which were spent with the Oakland Raiders.
