Seahawks Acquire Matt Tobin From Eagles

The Eagles and Seahawks have completed a trade. The Seahawks will acquire tackle Matt Tobin and a 2018 seventh-round pick in exchange for a 2018 fifth-round pick. "<strong

Tobin, 27, saw significant playing time for the Eagles in 2014 and 2015. Last year, he appeared in 12 games before he landed on IR in December. The 6’6″ lineman was on the field for 101 offensive snaps last year (35 passing, 65 running) and earned a substandard 49.0 overall grade from Pro Football Focus.

Presumably, the former UDFA has healed up from last year’s knee injury, so he might be able to push Rees Odhiambo for the starting job vacated by George Fant‘s season-ending injury. If he falls short in that battle, Tobin’s versatility will work in his favor with experience at both tackle and guard.

The Seahawks still have to figure out their left tackle situation, but they project to start Luke Joeckel, Justin Britt, Oday Aboushi, and Germain Ifedi at the remaining O-Line spots.

    Smart move for Philly, deal away a guy that is expendable and improve the draft pick.
