Seymour is competing in the World Series of Poker and is now in 35th place in the event, which drew 8,569 competitors.

Seymour now sits in 35th place in the World Series of Poker entering day five of the competition by ranking in the top 0.4% of the 8,569 entrants.

Seymour is guaranteed $35,000 for reaching day five of the tournament.

Seymour peaked early in the day with about 3.6 million chips and spent a brief stretch playing with another National Football League alumnus, former Detroit Lions tight end Eric Stocz. Entering Wednesday, Seymour was one of 354 players remaining in the tournament. That means he beat out 95 percent of the field at this year's World Series of Poker.

Seymour received a generous flop, as the Kc-6h-2d board gave him a pair of kings and the lead.

For his efforts, Seymour earned a payday of $59,295 - the second-largest result of his poker career. According to Cardplayer.com he's won $575,448 in casino events and $147,851 on the World Poker Tour. The 2001 first-round pick spent the first eight seasons of his career with the Patriots before signing with the Raiders and spending four years in Oakland (2009-12).

The man has done extremely well at winning money from poker over the years and has lasted decently long in WSOP Main Events in the past.
