Seattle and Detroit Make a Deal… Again

The Seahawks have reportedly acquired offensive tackle Tyler Polumbus from the Detroit Lions. No word on compensation yet.

Following injuries to Russell Okung and Ray Willis, Seattle has obviously been desperate for tackle depth. Mansfield Wrotto has been starting at left tackle after making the switch from guard, and Chester Pitts is still a few weeks away from playing.

The deal makes sense for Seattle, assuming compensation is minimal. And it isn’t a complete shock that the Detroit Lions are, once again, Seattle’s trading partner.

More will be posted regarding this trade as it develops.
