The deadline for teams to reach their final 53-man roster is just around the corner, and a flurry of moves have been made with the Seattle Seahawks adding another body to their secondary following a trade with the Indianapolis Colts.
Indianapolis announced on social media that they have shipped defensive back Marcus Burley to the Pacific Northwest in exchange for a 2015 sixth-round pick of the Seahawks.

Burley had put together a solid preseason campaign, so it is a smart move for Seattle to bring him on board.
If there is any team out there who knows how to get the most out of their players in the secondary, the Seahawks are that team.
The Seahawks will be the fifth team that Burnley has played for since going undrafted a year ago. Burnley has been on the rosters of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Philadelphia Eagles, St. Louis Rams, Colts and now Seattle.
