Raiders to franchise Richard Seymour

The Oakland Raiders plan to use the franchise tag on veteran defensive lineman Richard Seymour.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the Raiders will hold onto Seymour by designating Seymour as their franchise player within the next two weeks.

Per the report, Seymour would make $14.9 million next season with a 20-percent raise over last year's franchise tag that he received last year.

Late in the season, Seymour said: "I see myself retiring as a Raider."
