Leon Washington Trade Looks Awfully Good Already

It's not often a front office gets to point to a move they made and say the direct result was a victory for their team. Yet, that is exactly what Pete Carroll and John Schneider get to do after the Seattle Seahawks' win over the San Diego Chargers on Sunday.

The Hawks acquired Leon Washington from the Jets for a fifth round pick on the third day of last year's draft. New York was dubious about giving Washington a multi-year deal after a horrendous broken leg injury last year, but Seattle saw an opportunity to pick up a potential playmaker on the cheap.

Boy, did they get a playmaker.

When you total it all up, even if Washington doesn't do another thing for the Seahawks all year, Carroll and Schneider essentially purchased a solitary victory for the price of a fifth round pick. Pretty good price?

I'd say so.
