    Raiders defensive tackle Richard Seymour's contract has been voided and according to NFL contract expert Joel Corry of the National Football Post, the Raiders are not free and clear.

    Friday was the day of reckoning for the Raiders with regard to Richard Seymour's contract. Either they void his contract or pay him $19.133 million next season. That wasn't going to happen and so the voiding of his contract was to be expected.

    Seymour's contract stated that if he didn't play a certain number of downs last season, the Raiders would have the option of voiding his contract. and was injured for the final eight games of last season and therefore did not meet those requirements.
