Seymour was a powerhouse for New England in the early years of its elusive dynasty, locking up three consecutive First-Team All-Pro awards. The Patriots won three Super Bowls with Seymour on their roster.
The now-40-year-old went to seven Pro Bowls over the course of his 12-year career, eight of those in New England. He spent last summer competing in the World Series of Poker’s Main Event where he finished 131st.
