A one time New England Patriots player, Richard Seymour, is among those playing in this year’s World Series of Poker.  The seven-time Pro Bowl player was also a part of the Oakland Raiders.

Seymour has earned more than $125,000 playing poker since retiring from the NFL after the 2012 season, including a solid 18th-place finish in the $10,000 WPT Five Diamond Main Event held at the Bellagio this past December. Seymour says that after his 12-year NFL career ended, he sought an activity to challenge him and stimulate his competitive fire.

"I really get to compete from a mental intelligence standpoint, while expanding and growing with the game," Seymour says. "I have always thought that the game of poker was about people, relationships and situations where you have to make really good decisions on the spot. I am fascinated with poker and really enjoy the game."
