Seymour attends ceremony

BROOKLINE, MASS. – Patriots defensive lineman Richard Seymour hopped out of a limo just ahead of safety Rodney Harrison in the circular driveway a few feet from Patriots owner Robert Kraft, who stood in the doorway of his home greeting guests at the Patriots latest ring ceremony.

Seymour waved, smiled and walked on past, declining comment despite his unexcused absence from the Patriots recently completed mandatory Patriots mini-camp.

He then shook hands with Kraft, absorbed a pat on the back and walked through Kraft's house to join his teammates at the championship ring celebration.

"Yes, [I was happy to see Richard]," Kraft answered when asked about Seymour's presence. "He RSVP'd that he was coming. He's a terrific guy and made great contributions. We're happy he's here."

Seymour's agent, Eugene Parker, has not returned phone calls, and Seymour still has not discussed his absence, which is presumed to be contract related.

The three-time Pro Bowler has been a regular participant in the team's offseason program.

Harrison, who said last Friday that he would like to be paid more like the league's top safeties, also walked past the media contingent without comment on his way into the celebration. But Harrison, unlike his Sunday night car-mate, was a full participant in the team's mini-camp.

UPDATE: Seymour did address the media after receiving his Super Bowl ring. See Q&A to follow.
