The Seattle Seahawks found an assist.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported on Wednesday that the Seahawks are acquiring veteran defensive player Carlos Dunlap from the Cincinnati Bengals. , In exchange for a seventh-round pick and offensive winger BJ Finney.
Dunlap’s entertainment time is reduced, so he feels very painful about his trip to Cincinnati, and he is dissatisfied with his usage. Bangladesh has been seeking default trade requirements.

In Week 7, Dunlap had the lowest 11 defensive snapshots of the season. In the past three games, his total number of appearances was only 66, a sharp drop from 71 in the third week.
The exception is the 31-year-old fringe stormtrooper, whose role in the defense of Bangladesh under the leadership of coordinator Lou Anarumo has decreased. Last weekend, Dunlap posted a deleted image on Instagram, showing that he is ranked third on the depth map. In Sunday’s loss to Cleveland, Dunlap and his assistant coach were seen arguing on the sidelines.
Dunlap further tried to force himself to leave Cincy by posting on Twitter that his home in the area was for sale. After that, Dunlap deleted the position, but he will now look for real estate in Seattle.
Dunlap’s contract is still one year away, and his basic salary will be set at $10.1 million.
In 11 seasons in Cincinnati, Dunlap created 82.5 sacks and 490 tackles, and won two Pro Bowls. In seven games in 2020, he has a sack and 18 tackles.
The Seahawks urgently need to upgrade its defense line. Adding Dunlap is a good start.
In the Super Bowl era, Seattle’s total defense (479.2 YPG) and worst defense (368.7) were the worst. No team has entered the playoffs in the playoffs, with a total playoff score of 415+ or YPG breakthrough 300.
In six games, the Seahawks as a team only participated in 9 QB sacks, ranking 27th in the NFL.
There is no doubt that the Seahawks have played four games this season. In that game, they allowed the opposing team to QB more than 400 passing and rushing yards, which was the most team in the entire season during the Super Bowl.
Even with a reduction in production in Cincinnati, Dunlap is an upgrade from Seattle. The Seahawks should still not seek defensive upgrades before the November 3 trading deadline.
