RENTON, Wash. — The Seahawks have acquired Pro Bowl left tackle Duane Brown in a trade with the Texans, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Seattle is sending cornerback Jeremy Lane to Houston along with a 2018 fifth-round pick and a 2019 second-round pick, sources told Schefter.
Seahawks general manager John Schneider confirmed that the trade has been agreed upon but said it had not been fully finalized yet. The trade comes one day before the NFL’s Tuesday trade deadline and one day after the Texans lost to the Seahawks in Seattle.

Schneider said the Seahawks are inheriting Brown’s current deal from Houston, which runs through 2018, and that there is no new deal beyond that. Brown is owed about $5 million for the remainder of this season and is scheduled to make $9.75 million in 2018.

“Because we acquired Duane, we want him to finish his career here and have him be here for several more years,” Schneider said.

Brown, 32, has spent his entire 10-year career with Houston, which selected him in the first round in 2008 out of Virginia Tech. He returned last week from a holdout and played 68 out of 71 offensive snaps Sunday against Seattle.

Brown posted a goodbye message to the Texans and their fans via his Instagram account.
Asked earlier Monday about the possibility of the Texans trading Brown, coach Bill O’Brien said: “I don’t have any say in that. You know what I mean? I coach the team, that’s what I do. Duane played well yesterday. Obviously he’s played well for us for a number of years. I have a lot of respect for Duane, but that’s the business side of things, and I just concentrate on coaching the team.”

On Friday, Brown was a vocal critic of Texans team owner Bob McNair’s comment saying, “We can’t have the inmates running the prison” during last week’s owners meeting in reference to ongoing player demonstrations during the national anthem.

The acquisition of Duane Brown should bring relief to the Seahawks' injury-depleted offensive line.

“I think it was ignorant,” Brown said. “I think it was embarrassing. I think it angered a lot of players, including myself. We put our bodies and minds on the line every time we step on that field, and to use an analogy of inmates in prison, that’s disrespectful. That’s how I feel about it.”

Schneider said the Seahawks had been talking with the Texans about Brown since Seattle lost starting left tackle George Fant to a torn ACL in the preseason. Rees Odhiambo, a 2016 third-round pick, has struggled while replacing Fant, as has Seattle’s offensive line as a whole this season.

The Seahawks previously met with free-agent left tackle Branden Albert, but nothing materialized.

The trade for Brown marks another bold move by Schneider, who had previously made deals for Marshawn Lynch in 2010, Percy Harvin in 2013 and Jimmy Graham in 2015.
Asked earlier Monday whether the Seahawks are hoping to make a trade before the deadline, coach Pete Carroll said: “You’re either competing or you’re not. You know John; he’s out there trying to figure out what’s going on. You never know.”

Adding Brown will require some salary-cap maneuvering by Seattle.

Brown’s contract with Houston includes a $9.4 million base salary for 2017, of which a little less than $5 million remains. The Seahawks had only about $1.4 million in cap space as of Monday, according to NFL Players Association records. So even with the remainder of Lane’s $4 million base salary for 2017 coming off the books, the Seahawks will have to clear room in some way to absorb Brown’s contract, unless they restructure it.

Seattle drafted Lane in the sixth round in 2012 and gave him a contract extension in March of 2016, after Lane came back from a broken wrist and torn ACL he suffered in Super Bowl XLIX against the New England Patriots.

Lane began this season as the Seahawks’ starting right cornerback but recently lost that job to rookie Shaquill Griffin. Lane returned Sunday after missing the past two games and most of a third with a groin injury. He began the game as Seattle’s nickelback but was replaced in that role by Justin Coleman after hurting his thigh, Carroll said.

Lane tweeted a farewell to the Seahawks shortly after the trade news broke and appeared ready to move on to the next chapter of his NFL career.
“We’ll miss him around here,” Schneider said. “He did a great job for us. He overcame his injury and everything from the second Super Bowl, but he had to be part of the deal.”

Pete Carroll: Seahawks’ run game ‘roaring right back’

The Seattle Seahawks’ run game struggled in 2016 due to Marshawn Lynch’s departure, injuries to running backs and a disastrous offensive line.

With the ground game unable to pound out yards, it discombobulated the rest of the operation. During the 2016 regular season, Seattle passed on more than 60 percent of its plays, per Next Gen Stats; in 2015, that number was a tad over 51 percent.

Coach Pete Carroll told 710 ESPN Radio in Seattle this week the Seahawks plan to get back to running the ball more in 2017.

“We definitely will,” Carroll said, via ESPN’s Sheil Kapadia. “We lost 100-something runs last year. And that was basically the story. That was basically the tale of why everything came about as it did. The defense had to do some more stuff. We had to throw the ball more. We had to pass protect more and all of that because the running game got knocked up.

“With the quarterback being a mess and the running back situation, everybody being banged up, we were just unable to find it. So I think we’ll come roaring right back at it.”

Last year, the Seahawks’ run game ranked 23rd in efficiency by Football Outsiders, after finishing third, first, seventh and first the previous four years, respectively.

The addition of Eddie Lacy beefs up the backfield that already boasted pint-sized bulldozer Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise. The trio could form the most dynamic backfield in the NFL, if they stay healthy.

Dion Jordan joining Seahawks after poor run with Dolphins

Former No. 3 overall pick Dion Jordan has agreed to a contract with the Seattle Seahawks, a source confirmed to ESPN’s Adam Caplan.

The Miami Dolphins waived Jordan on March 31 after he failed a physical. The move saved Miami $3.225 million in salary for 2017.

Jordan projects as a strongside linebacker in the Seahawks’ base defense and a defensive end in their sub packages. It would be a role similar to the one that Bruce Irvin filled for Seattle before signing with the Oakland Raiders in free agency last year. Mike Morgan, last season’s starting strongside linebacker for the Seahawks, is an unrestricted free agent.

USA Today Sports first reported Jordan’s agreement with the Seahawks.

In 2013, Miami made a trade and moved up from No. 12 to No. 3 to draft Jordan. He had just three sacks in 2013 and 2014 and has had multiple suspensions for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. He didn’t play in a game in 2015 or 2016.

The Dolphins kept Jordan under contract the past two years because of his potential. He was eligible to return from suspension in 2016 but arrived at training camp with a knee injury the team was unaware of. Jordan never showed Miami’s coaching staff enough last season to get on the active roster.

Jordan, who turned 27 in March, was a star at Oregon from 2009 to 2012 under former NFL coach Chip Kelly.

Marshawn Lynch Elite Jersey

Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider said during a radio interview Friday that he thinks star running back Marshawn Lynch(Marshawn Lynch Jersey) “is leaning toward retirement.”

“I know that we’re going to treat him with as much respect as we possibly can here, and give him a little leeway to kind of find his way in terms of what he wants to do,” Schneider told 710 ESPN Seattle. “But I’m under the impression that he’s leaning toward retirement.”

In a second interview on KJR-AM later Friday, Schneider hedged his comments slightly but reiterated that he thought Lynch was considering stepping away.

“I really, honestly don’t know at this point,” Schneider said. “If you put a gun to my head I would say he is leaning toward retirement. But I think with Marshawn you never really know. He’s a fierce competitor. We just have to handle it the right way in terms of showing him as much respect as we possibly can for everything he’s done for this organization.”

After an injury-filled season during which Lynch played in just seven regular-season games, the Seahawks must determine whether it’s time to move on or keep him for another season at a hefty cost.

A five-time Pro Bowler, Lynch will cost $11.5 million against Seattle’s salary cap for the 2016 season if he returns. No one was willing to make definitive statements Monday, one day after Seattle’s season ended in a 31-24 loss to the Carolina Panthers in an NFC divisional playoff game.

“We’ll figure it out,” coach Pete Carroll said. “It depends on how he comes back and how he works at it and all that kind of stuff. He had a difficult year physically.”

Lynch was limited to just 111 carries and 417 yards in the regular season because of a hamstring injury early in the season and abdominal surgery in late November that sidelined him for the final seven games of the regular season.

Lynch appeared ready to return for the NFC wild-card game at Minnesota, but backed out of making the trip to Minneapolis on the Friday before the game, telling the team he didn’t think he could play. Lynch returned for Sunday’s game at Carolina but was barely a factor in the run game with Seattle quickly falling behind 14-0 and trailing 31-0 at halftime.

While Lynch was out in the regular season, rookie Thomas Rawls emerged as a potential replacement long term. Rawls led Seattle with 830 yards rushing in the regular season and averaged 5.6 yards per carry before suffering a broken ankle in Week 14 at Baltimore.
