This is a thought that has persisted in my mind.
Sometimes ideas that make too much sense don't happen, but humor me here.
Seymour has played out of place in Oakland as a defensive end in the 4-3 base defense, and sometimes moves inside to play tackle. Seymour had spent much of his career as an end in the 3-4 defense with the New England Patriots.
Washington now wants to convert to the 3-4 under new coach Mike Shanahan, which has made defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth unhappy.
There have been no stories about discontent of Seymour. It seems, however, that Haynesworth would be a better fit on a 4-3 defense, as Seymour would be on a 3-4.
Thus, it seems that the answer is merely to swap the two players. The Raiders seem committed to the 4-3 defense, while Washington wants the 3-4.
Seymour could get paid in Washington, while Haynesworth would plug the middle of a defense on a team where "run defense" has been more of a turnstile.
What do you think?
