I think he is about to really decline hard now that he has hit 30. This has been his worst year in the league since his rookie year.

Once he loses his explosiveness he will no longer be dominant as he has never been a great technician as a pass rusher and has never been much of a bullrusher.
I'd be fine to keep him since I enjoy having him in the Cowboys uniform but I also know if we keep him now we'll end up with just a good player the next couple of years and not a dominant one. At the end of that stretch we'd be left with nothing except some dead cap space.

It was even worse for the Patriots since they were SB contenders and Seymour didn't have quite the same chronic health issue that Ware has had since the 2009 season.
yeah just how much the Patriots D was rebuilt after trading seymour- NOT
