Reached this morning at his home outside of Atlanta former Patriots and Raiders defensive lineman Richard Seymour indicated that he was not considering a return to New England in the wake of Vince Wilfork's season-ending Achilles injury.

When asked if he'd come back to the Patriots where he was part of all three Super Bowl championship teams Seymour chuckled responding "No way."

The 33-year-old former sixth overall draft pick and seven-time Pro Bowler said he is spending his time working on earning his private pilot's license.

Of course at his age and playing ability if a lucrative offer was presented to the 6-foot-6 317-pound Seymour he might consider a return to the playing field though that appears to be a longshot based on his reaction this morning. In addition the Patriots usually prefer to find more economically feasible ways to add personnel to their roster.
