Writing on SB Nation’s FieldGulls.com, Vasili notes that the Seahawks trade of cornerback Josh Wilson to Baltimore comes as a surprise and doesn’t make a lot of sense.
If anyone can make any sense of this incineration of value then feel free to help us out, I can’t make heads or tails from it.
It does look like the team likes Walter Thurmond (and Roy Lewis, presumably), and that’s fine. Pete, you inherited this roster and we get that not all the players are off your choice. What I don’t get is:
a) unlike Tapp and Jackson, there’s nothing wrong with Josh Wilson playing in this defensive system, he fits it fine.
b) if you have to get rid of players, can you really, honestly do no better than this piddling return from a team desperate for cornerbacks?
