Richard Seymour to Report to Oakland

Despite reports suggesting he wouldn't be reporting to the Raiders, Seymour will be flying to Oakland to meet with his team and coaches, although he is not expected to suit up in Week One.

Seymour expressed the move of his family being more important than football, and simply was working through specifics of the move, both for himself and his family, rather than trying to avoid an arrival in Oakland.

Seymour was quoted, saying that he would be "the guy wearing No. 92 on top of the quarterback." Well, we shall see.


San Diego DA Not Going After Shawne Merriman

The DA was allegedly going to pursue Merriman for two felony charges in connection with an alleged domestic abuse case involving Tila Tequila.

After fully reviewing the case, the DA came to the conclusion that there was "insufficient evidence" to prove a crime was committed.

Merriman will not be charged, and should not receive any type of discipline from the NFL, either.
