NFC South: Richard Seymor

Last week, John Manasso reported that the Atlanta Falcons and veteran defensive tackle Richard Seymour were in contract talks.

That makes plenty of sense because Seymour has a home in the Atlanta area and the Falcons need some depth in the middle of a defensive line that includes Jonathan Babineaux, Corey Peters and Peria Jerry.

But I wouldn’t count on seeing any deal between the Falcons and Seymour for at least a few more days. At the moment, the Falcons are only $1.93 million under the salary cap and top draft picks Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford remain unsigned.

However, there is a big bump in cap room on the way for the Falcons. Due to the fact, the Falcons designated offensive tackle Tyson Clabo as a June 1 release, they’ll free up $4.5 million in cap space later this week.

That would give the Falcons more than enough room to get Seymour and their draft picks signed.
