There have been a number of stories regarding the Raiders and their franchise tag this week and most of them mentioned DE Richard Seymour as the likely player to get the tag. That idea was reiterated today by the San Francisco Chronicle who reports that Raiders do intend to franchise Seymour.
Yesterday that NFL Network reported that the team was considering tagging TE Zach Miller but the majority of media outlets differ on the subject.
As we have previously mentioned, the Raiders could use the “franchise tag” on one player and the “transition tag” on the other which may have something to do with the conflicting reports.
One thing for certain, Seymour intends on finishing his career in Oakland.
“I see myself retiring as a Raider,” said Seymour during the 2010 season.
