NFL Trade Rumors: Seahawks focused on football, not trade deadline


Sometimes the best trade is no trade at all. The Seattle Seahawks have been all over the map these past few years, finally working their way into a top 5 power ranking and the best home team in football. I mean where would they need to look for a good trade?

Let’s see, offensively the Hawks seem pretty set. Franchise quarterback and capable backup, check. Franchise running back with capable backups, check. Capable receiving corps with a potential No. 1, check. The offensive line is set with a couple Pro Bowlers and capable starters, if they could stay healthy.

Really the only spot Seattle is struggling offensively is at tight end. Even there, Zach Miller is the now and Luke Willson seems to be the future. I still contend the Seahawks need to look at Tony Scheffler as a veteran presence. But that would be free agency thing.

Defensively the Seahawks are pretty much set at every position and spent so much energy switching around their defensive line that while they’ll look (as always), I don’t see a move coming. That’s just fine with me. They need to be focused on football.

After all, Percy Harvin is still this new commodity that they haven’t played with yet, so the improvement is coming. You trade for starters and it sure seems like the Seahawks are set at this point to make a run at the Super Bowl with what they have.

    They need a left, right tackle and a right gaurd. Sweezy, McQuisten, and Bowie cant get the job done. I am worried for Russell Wilson’s health, seems like he is running for his life every 2 seconds the ball is snapped. That’s a PATHETIC OFFENSIVE LINE.

    Yeah as others said below, we are as far from “set” at the offensive line as a team can be. Even those (infrequent) times when our O-line is healthy we are not a top ten O-line. And you can never have enough depth there (as we see right now). I think we should put together of a package of guys we can afford to lose, maybe Browner or Thurmond plus Rice (since we will soon have Harvin and Rice will be a free agent soon anyway) and maybe someone else (like Okung since he can’t stay healthy anyway) and try to pry a star Left tackle plus whatever else we can get (right tackle or tight end maybe).
