Report: Seahawks thinking TE Jimmy Graham for Texans LT Duane Brown
We recently covered a slightly more iffy report. According to a report from SportsTalk360, Seattle is (was?) open to trading Graham, and the Saints have expressed an interest in bring the four-time Pro Bowl selection back to New Orleans.
As we mentioned at the time, the New Orleans report never even cited sources. I’d take that “report” with a grain of salt.
As for the Seahawks thinking about moving Jimmy Graham for Duane Brown, this one seems to have legs.
The Texans are in a state of turmoil at the moment. Heading into the the team’s game on Sunday, reports surfaced that the roster was thinking about doing a group protest after owner Bob McNair called players inmates.
McNair has since released statements, claiming he wasn’t referring to the players as inmates, but he has apologized anyway.
The Seahawks could certainly use someone with talent on their offensive line. Brown can help do that, but it is a matter of the Texans willingly moving him for a tight end who might be on the decline (relatively speaking to his skills, of course).
We will monitor all these Jimmy Graham trade whispers as they continue to develop. Teams are really going to have to decide what they want to do ASAP, as the trade deadline is near.
If you were the Texans, would you do this trade? What about if you were the Seahawks?
