According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Seahawks have received calls from teams interested in Rashaad Penny leading up to Tuesday’s 4 PM ET trade deadline.
Despite his first-round pedigree (though many deemed his selection at 27th overall a reach), Penny has failed to keep pace with Chris Carson, who has emerged as a legitimate NFL workhorse. That could make Penny expendable and while the Seahawks will surely command a pretty penny (no pun intended) for the former San Diego State Aztec, Rapoport’s NFL Network colleague Mike Garafolo believes a trade ahead of Tuesday’s deadline is certainly “possible.” Penny, who has battled hamstring woes throughout his sophomore campaign, was held without a touch in last week’s loss to Baltimore.
I wonder if he is someone the Lions might try to target? They tried to trade for him after Seattle drafted him. He has battled injuries but we already know the front office loves him. What would it take to get him? What would that mean for Kerryon? Seattle has issues at TE, would they have any interest in Jesse James? I see a lot of Drake talk and I like him too but I find Penny possibly being available very interesting. What’s everyone’s thoughts on this?
