Report: Seahawks make trade with Jags for DT Smith

Tom Pelissero of USA Today is reporting that the Seattle Seahawks have made a trade for Jacksonville defensive tackle D’ Anthony Smith.

Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports the Seahawks gave up a conditional draft pick to get the 6-2, 300-pound defensive tackle because they didn’t know if he would fall far enough on the waiver wire for the team to claim him.

The Seahawks need defensive line depth, with Brandon Mebane (groin), Tony McDaniel (groin), Michael Bennett (toe) and Jordan Hill (strained bicep) all dealing with injuries.

Still no word on the rest of the cuts, so stay tuned.
