Seahawks Trade Away Fan Favorite

Not too long after the 49ers washed their hands of 2012 first round pick, A.J. Jenkins, by trading him to Kansas City for another underachieving wide out in Jon Baldwin-- the Seahawks made a move of their own.

The Seahawks traded John Moffitt, beloved among the fan base, to Cleveland in exchange for defensive end, Brian Sanford.

It was beginning to look like Moffitt was was being outplayed by J.R. Sweezy, but most of us had assumed that he would be retained for depth, if nothing else. What's more puzzling to me is that Sanford comes over to an already crowded defensive end group.

I'm curious to hear what Pete Carrol's comments will be on this. With the eventual returns of Avril, Clemons and Irvin coupled with Bennett, Bryant and the emerging rookie, Benson Mayowa-- I don't understand the benefit of this move.
