Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports confirms that free agent DL Richard Seymour and the Atlanta Falcons are nowhere close to reaching an agreement and it appears as though talks between the two sides are dead. “I thank them for their efforts,” Seymour explained to La Canfora. The Falcons have reportedly been in contact with Seymour for a number of weeks now, but Seymour’s asking price has most likely been a sticking point. The Falcons currently have $6.43 million in cap space to work with, but given Seymour’s age, 33, and the fact minicamps are already underway, it’s unlikely they would be willing to offer him starters money. Seymour had declared that he would only play in 2013 if he were to get paid top money, and it’s increasingly unlikely that anyone will be willing to come close to his asking price. As a result, he could end up hanging his cleats. We have Abraham listed as the No. 7 player in our Best Available Free Agents list.
