Richard Seymour is no stranger to performing in big events — witness the three Super Bowl rings he won with the Patriots — but he hasn't lost his competitive fire in retirement.

The former defensive lineman turned some heads in Las Vegas this week at the World Series of Poker. But after beginning Day 5 of the event Wednesday in 35th place (out of 8,569 entries) with $2.75 million in chips, he ran into some bad hands and was eliminated, finishing 131st.

Still, Seymour took home $59,295, not a bad five-day haul for a guy in retirement.

“As a competitor, you always want to still be in it," Seymour told PokerCentral.com. "You just have to try and go out and make the best decisions possible, and today I had a day where I had to fold a lot of hands. I was in some pretty sick spots, I’m happy with my decisions and that’s all you can do in this game. You let the cards fall where they may and it just didn’t go my way.”

The No. 6 overall pick in the 2001 NFL Draft by the Patriots, Seymour was a seven-time Pro Bowl selection with the Patriots and Raiders.
