At the time of the deal, the thought was that the Patriots took a short-term hit dealing Seymour but gained more in the long-term. That holds true four years later, although one thing I didn’t realize at the time of the trade was how things were brewing behind the scenes with Seymour and the Patriots. After a great run together, I don’t think either side was happy with the other. After learning that, the trade made a lot more sense than it did at the time, and all but eliminates any chance of Seymour returning to New England in 2013.
