Seahawks interested in trade for Duane Brown, per report
Could the Houston Texans trade left tackle Duane Brown to the Seattle Seahawks before the NFL trade deadline?
Many people were wondering if the Houston Texans would trade starting left tackle Duane Brown during his hold out earlier this season.
While there haven’t been any indications that the Texans are willing to get rid of Brown, there’s one team that’s interested in acquiring him.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported on Sunday that the Seattle Seahawks have contacted the Texans about Brown, with the trade deadline looming this week.
Rapoport has also reported that the Seahawks would be willing to part with star tight end Jimmy Graham, if it would land them a left tackle like Brown, according to NFL.com.
If Seattle is going to acquire a left tackle, they likely won’t be giving up Graham. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported on Sunday that the Seahawks won’t be trading Graham away.
Seahawks’ head coach Pete Carroll has even came out and said that Graham isn’t going anywhere.
With everything that’s happened with Texans’ owner Bob McNair and his recent comments, Brown could try and force a trade in order to get out of Houston. I wouldn’t expect that to happen, but you never know, since his hold out was partially due to McNair’s views.
When it comes to Graham, the Texans don’t need him. They need more offensive line help. Houston has plenty of offensive weapons already at their disposal.
Houston is fine at the tight end position with C.J. Fiedorowicz and Ryan Griffin.
