lostnmexico Posted October 30, 2017 Share Posted October 30, 2017 This from Sunday: To make a move for a blindside blocker, the Seattle Seahawks would be willing to part ways with tight end Jimmy Graham for salary-cap purposes, per Rapoport. The team has had trade talks centered around the tight end, Rapoport said on NFL Network's NFL GameDay Kickoff. Seattle has less than $2 million in cap space. Graham, in the final year of his contract, has a $10 million cap hit for this season. Duane Brown and his big contract just got traded to Seattle! The veteran tackle has been traded to the Seattle Seahawks for cornerback Jeremy Lane and a draft selection, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. ESPN first reported the news. Seattle was in dire need of a tackle after losing George Fant to a torn ACL in mid-August, and has managed to make it through (without any semblance of a rushing attack) the first half of the season before making a move. After seeing Brown on the Seahawks' own game film from Sunday's contest, Seattle saw all its brass needed to complete the deal. Brown returned last week from a prolonged holdout. Now he'll be getting up to speed with his new team -- a rare instance in which a Monday after a loss turns into a Victory Monday. Brown has spent his entire career with Houston, which selected him in the first round of the 2008 draft. He's appeared in 133 games over his 10-year career.
