06:14 PM ET 06.17 | Defensive end Richard Seymour made $15 million per year over the last two seasons in Oakland. The Falcons have just $5.8 million left under the cap. They have two rookies to sign and a $100 million-mega-deal to do with quarterback Matt Ryan. Do the math? The Falcons and Seymour just don't add up at this time. After the Falcons finish their rookie deals, they will have just under $4 million left under the salary cap, according to NFLPA documents. Seymour, a former University of Georgia standout, recently told Jason La Canfora of CBS sports that the Falcons currently don???t have enough money to sign him and he thanked the team for their efforts.
