    Would love to have him but I think there is no cap room given that it would require more than the Vet minimum to bring him on board.

    :(

    He's doing a TV show "Inside the Bears". With co-host Lindsay Petruny. If I was him, I wouldn't come back from that.

    I respectfully disagree. Seymour is out of the game right now. He still thinks he can play, so he would be more inclined to sign an incentive laden contract. Further, he will only get to play 69% of the season, so cap hit isn't so bad. We have a couple of million of cap space, IIRC, after restructuring Peppers contract.

    And I fail to see any real alternative other than a trade where we would get merked on value. Hopefully, Emery was talking to his agent last night.

    With our DTs blowing up, starting to look like a Spinal Tap search...

    I hope you are correct. Depends on just how bad he wants to play again.
