Seahawks’ Bye Week


Source: Seattle Times

The Seattle Seahawks’ bye week is ending soon, and they haven’t added anyone to their team. However, they are busy in the trade market. After losing star running back Chris Carson, resulting a busted offensive line, the Seahawks will not make the same mistake twice. As of now, the Seahawks are interested in the Texans tackle Duane Brown.

However, Brown is 32 and might not stay a long time in Seattle. The other tackle that interests the Seahawks is Cordy Glenn of the Buffalo Bills. Glenn is 28 years old, so he will probably remain with the Seahawks longer than Brown, but there are trade issues associated with Glenn.

If Seattle wanted to acquire Cordy Glenn, before week 7, they would need to trade a player to them. Analyzing the Bills’ roster, the Bills need a tight end, or a wide receiver. To add to that, if Seattle wanted to acquire Cordy by the end of the season, they would need to offer a lot of money to him. If the Bills desire to keep Cordy, Seahawks would need to offer at least 20 million dollars. Finally, other than Glenn, there is one more option. Brandon Albert was a tackle for the Miami Dolphins for nine years and is currently retired, but wants to rejoin the NFL. Albert already visited the Seahawks, but no deal has been struck at the moment.

Reporters don’t know at the moment who the Seahawks will sign, but we will probably find out by the end of the week, before the Seahawks go to New York and face the Giants. Will Seattle finally solidify their offensive line and be able to protect Russell Wilson and Eddie Lacy? Will the Seahawks finish atop the NFC?
