Patriots, Seymour agree on contract extension

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (April 12, 2006) -- The New England Patriots reached an agreement with All-Pro defensive lineman Richard Seymour on a contract extension.

The team did not release the financial terms or length of the deal.

A call from The Associated Press to Seymour's agent was not immediately returned.

The 6-foot-6, 310-pound Seymour is entering the final year of the six-year contract he signed as a rookie after the team selected him in the first round -- No. 6 overall -- out of Georgia.

Seymour, the cornerstone of the team's young defensive line, held out of camp last season until he was given a raise.

Seymour has 316 tackles, 25 1/2 sacks, three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries in 71 career regular-season games, as well as 41 tackles, 3½ sacks and one fumble recovery in nine career playoff games.
