The Seahawks need more pass-rushing and Aldon Smith could provide just that.
The Seahawks are undoubtedly in the market for a veteran pass rusher. This season has shown several promising glimpses from different players. Small flashes showing potential. Alton Robinson has made several big plays. Benson Mayowa has been solid at creating pressure. LJ Collier has been quietly productive.
However, the Seahawks are looking at a Super Bowl this season. This isn’t the time to try and develop players. It’s time to stack the roster with the best talent you can find. This is why I believe the Seahawks are going to be aggressive in bringing in more talent at the deadline.
None of the current edge rushers have succeeded in taking over a game. The Seahawks have the 27th best pressure rate amongst all defensive lineman at just 3.63%. This is suboptimal. Regardless of how good your secondary is, if the linemen can’t create pressure, the wide receivers will eventually get open.
You have read articles about my trade proposals for players like Ryan Kerrigan, Carlos Dunlap, and Takkarist McKinley. Now I propose to you the most sure-fire option available. Making a deal with the Dallas Cowboys for stud pass rusher Aldon Smith.
Aldon Smith hasn’t played since 2015 but still has twitch and that great ability to burst to close on QBs and ball carriers. pic.twitter.com/df8BtL1eoJ

I want to give a shoutout to my friend Maurice for this brilliant trade idea. The move makes all too much sense for all parties involved. So long as the Cowboys continues to see losses.
