Richard Seymour has been one of the best defensive linemen in the league over the past decade, but he’s heading into the tail end of his career, going into his age 33 season this year. As players age, injuries tend to become more and more of an issue. That seems to be what’s happening with Seymour, as, according to Contra Costa Times, Seymour is dealing with an arthritic knee that may require “maintenance” all season.

He was ProFootballFocus’ 11th rated defensive tackle, with 6 sacks, 9 quarterback hits, and 25 quarterback pressures on 550 pass rush snaps last season, good for a 7.3% rate, impressive for a defensive tackle. He ranked 3rd among defensive tackles as a pass rusher on ProFootballFocus and also played the run well. However, he’s so sure thing to play that well again this year. The Raiders had the league’s 29th ranked defense in the league last year, allowing 27.1 points per game. After losing their top cornerback, Stanford Routt, and their ...
