All treats and no tricks: 3 under the radar trade targets for the Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks could boost their already solid defense with any - or all - of these three moves

The Seattle Seahawks can still address some critical roster needs before the NFL trade deadline. None of these players are flashy, but all three could have a big impact on the Hawks' drive to the postseason.

The Seahawks took a body blow with the loss of Uchenna Nwosu. There's no way to dismiss that, no reason, either. They addressed that immediate need by bringing Frank Clark home in a move that will almost certainly pay major dividends. Just as we've witnessed a resurgence from Jarran Reed, I expect Clark will ball out for the Hawks, not that he's truly home.

But that doesn't mean Seattle is done shopping by any means. Pete Carroll said that the team will rely on their current rotation to replace Nwosu. When asked if the team would look for a free agent or a trade, he replied, "We're not thinking like that yet." Of course, since that interview, they brought Clark in, but there's still a lot of conjecture about the Seahawks making a big splashy trade for a name player.

The Seattle Seahawks don't need a big name, just more good players

While it would be great to land a player like Brian Burns or Chase Young, the Hawks have already addressed the absence of Nwosu by adding Clark. Now, I'm not saying that Clark will put up the numbers that either of those players would, but he certainly could. Or come close enough so that Seattle could address other areas of need with the valuable resources at third disposal.

None of my three choices would take too much to steal away from their current teams, yet all three could make big contributions to the team.
