A seven-time Pro Bowler and five-time All-Pro, Seymour played an integral role on the early Patriots dynasty of the early 2000’s. Through 12 seasons in the NFL, he compiled 496 total tackles with 91 TFLs, 57.5 sacks, and eight fumble recoveries. He spent eight seasons with the Patriots, helping the team win Super Bowl 36, Super Bowl 38, and Super 39. The Georgia product would be traded to the Oakland Raiders in 2009, where he spent four seasons before retiring following the 2012 season.
