06:42 PM ET 06.25 | As the NFL settles into summer vacation mode, defensive lineman Richard Seymour remains unsigned. He has been linked to the Falcons, but as he told Sirius XM NFL Radio on Tuesday, there???s ???really nothing new to report??? on that front. Before that update, he addressed an interesting question from Sirius??? Rich Gannon: would he consider returning to the Patriots, who traded him to Oakland in 2009? Seymour???s answer was clear, and it reflected both his feelings and his sense of how the Patriots feel, too. ???I always felt like that chapter was closed when I left there,??? Seymour said. ???I???ve always been grateful for the time I spent there, and we had a great time together. I thought it worked well for both sides, but I kind of moved on from there.??? (And, as Seymour noted, the Patriots ???moved on as well.???)

He's a loose end, they need a tight one.

Bill B. and Seymour had a "communications" issue--Bill spoke and Richard didn't listen.
Bye Bye Richard!
Not coming back in this lifetime.

I don't think it was ever an option for Seymour to return to N.E.

Richard to Hoodie: "It's not you, it's me".

If he goes to the Falcons, teams should be on notice.

Richard Seymour has handled himself with class, something with which N.E. is unfamiliar with.
