November 3 marks Election Day around the nation and cutoff day for trades around the National Football League. The official 2020 NFL trade deadline is Tuesday at 1:00 p.m. PT.
Like voters throughout the country, many teams – including the Seahawks – executed trades over the last week or so, well ahead of last call.
On October 28, the Seahawks traded with the Bengals for defensive end Carlos Dunlap, sending offensive lineman B.J. Finney and a seventh-round pick to Cincinnati in exchange.
“Seattle’s languishing pass rush is arguably the foremost problem with the NFL’s last-ranked defense, so John Schneider and Pete Carroll went bargain hunting,” notes the USA TODAY staff.
