Oakland defensive lineman Richard Seymour attended the funeral of Myra Kraft, the wife of New England owner Robert Kraft, Friday. Seymour was traded to Oakland from New England nearly two years ago. Seymour has expressed displeasure with the way the Patriots, in particular coach Bill Belichick, handled his departure. It was a classy move by Seymour to attend the funeral. Myra Kraft died of cancer. She was a favorite of many Patriots’ players and their families.

The Oakland Tribune looks at the challenges the Raiders will have re-signing free-agent tight end Zach Miller. I expect Miller to be back. The Raiders love him and they usually take care of their own. Losing Miller would be crushing and the Raiders know it.
