2023 NFL Trade Live Updates and Analysis
Leonard Williams Traded to Seattle Seahawks
- DL Leonard Williams from New York Giants to Seattle (Oct. 30). Trade compensation includes a 2024 second-round pick and a 2025 fifth-round pick.
Analysis by Dalton Miller: The New York Giants dealt defensive lineman Leonard Williams to the Seattle Seahawks. In return, New York received a 2024 second-round pick and a 2025 fifth-round pick. In Layman’s terms, this was not an insignificant deal.
Maybe the Seahawks smelled blood in the water in the NFC West. The Rams clearly aren’t ready to compete in 2023, and the 49ers are coming off three consecutive losses. And it’s becoming all the more clear that their young quarterback is struggling to maneuver against pressure.
The move gives the Giants some much-needed salary cap relief. Heading into the day, no team had less space to operate than New York. The Seahawks receive a pass rusher coming off a six-pressure game against the Jets. But maybe more importantly, Williams provides the kind of alignment versatility that can elevate the Seahawks’ new-look defense.
