Poker-playing celebrities have long been a fixture at The World Series of Poker (WSOP).

In addition to the best players from around the globe, who travel to Las Vegas every summer to compete for the ultimate prize in poker -- the WSOP bracelet -- the event has been known to lure luminaries from film, television, music, and sports. This summer's festivities are no exception.

It might be tempting to include Richard Seymour on that list of dignitaries from other fields. The seven-time Pro Bowl defensive end for the New England Patriots and Oakland Raiders, and member of the NFL's All-Decade Team for the 2000s, will likely never be known more for his poker playing than for the way he blew up opposing backfields. But to be clear, Seymour is far from an amateur in this world.

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." -patriots-defensive-end-richard-seymour-finds-post-football- identity-poker-table-wsop
