3 wide receivers the Seattle Seahawks should trade for right now

The Seattle Seahawks have a handful of healthy receivers currently, and the health of the position seems to be getting worse, not better. First-round pick Jaxon Smith-Njigba could miss at least the first game with a wrist injury. Other than DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, Seattle has no other proven receivers.

Of course, Jake Bobo is having a great training camp and preseason, but we do not know how good he can be against the starters for most teams. And at this point, Jake Bobo would seem to be WR3 in Week 1. That's pretty scary.

There aren't really any free agent wide receivers worth spending much money on. Possibly some team makes a surprise cut of a receiver and Seattle can pick that player up. Or possibly Seattle could pull off a trade for one of the three players that follow.

Seahawks should trade for Josh Reynolds

Josh Reynolds isn't a slot receiver and this is more of what Seattle needs. But with Jaxon Smith-Njigba likely out for Week 1 (at least), Seattle doesn't really have a true slot guy. Jake Bobo might make the team, but at 6'4" he isn't a slot receiver either. Reynolds, though, is a solid receiver, if not spectacular. In his career he has caught nearly 60 percent of his targets and he caught 64.4 percent last season.

He's never had a true breakout season, but then he's mostly been on a team with other good receivers. This is just another reason he will fit with Seattle. Reynolds doesn't have such a big ego that he either gets the ball a ton each game or he sulks. He would understand that DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett are going to see the ball more and they should.

Reynolds also wouldn't cost the Seahawks too much either. He is a free agent after the 2023 season, and his current deal pays him just $3 million. Seattle could easily afford that. The Seahawks have two third-round picks and then a pick in each round thereafter. I would think if Seattle offered Reynolds current team, the Detroit Lions, a fourth-round choice that might be enough to get Reynolds.
