5 most likely teams Seahawks could trade with before the deadline
By Geoff Shull
The trade deadline is just around the corner and the Seahawks will likely be active.
The Seahawks are the last undefeated team in the NFC. This is a huge feat as they are now in sole possession of the number 1 seed. However, the team shouldn’t get complacent. There are 5 teams I could see them trading with.
Trust me, John Schneider and Pete Carroll are not satisfied. There are holes and deficiencies on the roster, as well as an overabundance of talent in other areas. You can trust that the leadership of this team is going to be aggressive in finding trades.
It is completely possible that they both trade away talent, as well as acquire talent. They will be looking to recoup some draft capital, as well as add talent to the team to help aid their Super Bowl aspiration.
As we are getting close to the mid-season point, teams are beginning to contemplate where they stand in the NFL. Some will be actively trying to tank for the number one pick. These teams are likely to be ‘sellers’ at the deadline.
Some teams are stuck in mediocrity. They could go either way. Some will try to shed salary, others will try to build up their team to try and get over the hump. Finally, there are contenders. These teams are almost assuredly trying to add talent as opposed to selling. They are ‘buyers.’
The Seahawks are an anomaly. They could very well be both a seller and a buyer. As I said, they have an overabundance of talent in certain position groupings. In others, they could look to buy talent on the market. They also traded away a lot of draft capital acquiring Jamal Adams.
The article will have subheaders of ‘seller’ and ‘buyer.’ The header of ‘seller’ means the Seahawks are trading away talent. The subheader of ‘buyer’ means the Seahawks are acquiring talent. Let’s go through 5 teams that I could see a deal coming together before the deadline.
