Pat Yasinskas of ESPN.com elaborated on the development shortly after. Reminding us that Seymour started his career with the New England Patriots, where Thomas Dimitroff worked in the teams personnel office before becoming the Falcons general manager in 2008.
In 2012, the 33-year-old only participated in eight games due to an injury. He posted 15 tackles and three sacks on the season. The 12-year veteran has registered 496 tackles, 57.5 sacks, 35 defended passes and 40 stuffs for his career.
Seymour could potentially shore up the depth on Atlanta's defensive line and could potentially make him a far more cap-friendly option than Falcons free agent Vance Walker.
His injury prone nature and recent decline production should put his current value around the veteran minimum.
Seymour could be an intriguing option and even play some defensive end, but it's not going to do much to full the Falcons glaring need for a formidable pass rusher.
