Despite all that we’ve heard about how free agents won’t be signing new deals until there’s a new CBA, the Oakland Raiders have reportedly agreed to a two-year, $30 million deal with Richard Seymour.It’s still true that free agents won’t be signing with other teams until there’s a new labour agreement, but the Raiders have shown that not every team is reluctant to pay its own players.
