However, it’s not just the bye week for the Seahawks, as Tuesday is also the trade deadline for the 2021 NFL season, and several teams have already kicked things off with trades. The biggest trade to date of course, has been the acquisition by the Los Angeles Rams of former Denver Broncos Edge rusher Von Miller in exchange for two Day 2 draft picks.
While Seattle has certainly struggled at times during the first half of the season oh, they are only a game out of the final wild-card spot in the NFC, and with both Russell Wilson and Chris Carson eligible to come off injured reserve after the bye things could get interesting down the stretch. However, 1st John Schneider and Pete Carroll will have an opportunity to make additions to – or possibly subtractions from – the roster, and any of a number of players who are buried on the depth chart could wind out on another team by the time Tuesday is finished. The biggest namesnare former first round picks Rashaad Penny and L.J. Collier, both of whom have been rumored to have been available and on the trade block.
Field Gulls will work to keep fans updated on all the action around the league as the deadline approaches.
