This trade doesn't make a lot of sense - I mostly expected both teams to just cut the players. That makes more sense financially too, since I doubt either team wants to keep those players at the contracts they have. Also, it ruins their abilities to make smokescreens - Detroit can be pretty much eliminated from the Aaron Curry sweepstakes (which hurts their chances of trading down) and Seattle can be eliminated from the B.J. Raji sweepstakes (which hurts their chances of trading down.) The Seahawks doing this means they're very likely to target Aaron Curry, but could be forced to either take a pretty substantial hit to their linebacker corps or cough up some extra picks (and potentially high ones) to move up one or two picks (potentially aiding the Rams, who are a division rival) to select Curry.
No announcement yet.
Cory Redding for Julian Peterson is done.
