If you thought that the Seattle Seahawks were done wheeling and dealing on what’s been a whirlwind of a Friday with the Sheldon Richardson trade coming to fruition, think again. Recently signed defensive back Tramaine Brock’s stay in Seattle will be surprisingly short, as Mike Garafolo reports that Brock is headed for Minneapolis, while Ian Rapoport says it’ll be for a seventh-round draft choice.

Brock literally only signed with the Seahawks two weeks ago, shortly after the former 49er had his domestic violence charges dismissed. It looked as if Brock would have a role in the Seahawks defense heading into the regular season, but that’s obviously not happening. Seattle managed to get a draft pick off of a player who wasn’t even on the roster for the first preseason game.
This may also be as good an indicator as any that, despite earlier reports that the Seahawks were looking to trade Jeremy Lane, he will most likely stay put.
The Seahawks traded away a 7th round pick to acquire Justin Coleman from the Patriots earlier today, and now they’ve received a 7th round pick from Minnesota for Brock.
