Seahawks Transactions: Seattle Trades For Tackle Tyler Polumbus

Looking to shore up the depth on the offensive line, the Seattle Seahawks traded for Detroit tackle Tyler Polumbus. The Lions and Seahawks both made claims on Polumbus after the tackle was placed on waivers by Denver earlier this week.

The Detroit Free Press reports conditions of the trade are unknown, but that Polumbus will be reunited with some familiar faces in Seattle.

Polumbus' agent, Jack Mills, said his client was traded to the Seahawks on Monday night. He will be reunited there with offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates, who was Denver's quarterbacks coach in 2008, when Polumbus was a rookie with the Broncos.

With first-round draft pick Russell Okung still nursing an injury, the Hawks are looking for a short-term solution at left-tackle. Mansfield Wrotto has been running with the first team, but the coaching staff didn't show much confidence in him, adding extra blockers to his side of the line.

Get well soon, Russell. The Seahawks need your presence on the blind side.

The Hawks finish off the preseason on Thursday against the Oakland Raiders.
