Carroll trades for RB LenDale White

For all of the talk that Pete Carroll might draft some of his former USC players, the first Trojan he added was a veteran via trade.
The Seattle Seahawks have just traded for running back LenDale White and defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson from the Tennessee Titans. In exchange, the Seahawks agreed to flip their picks in the 4th and 6th rounds with the Titans. The Titans are now on the board and selected UCLA cornerback Alterraun Verner with the 104th pick. The Titans also get Seattle's 176th pick.

Seattle, on the other hand, gets the 111th and 185th picks.

The trade reunites White with Pete Carroll and gives the Seahawks the big back to pair with Julius Jones and Justin Forsett. Though White was essentially cast aside last year in Tennessee, two years ago he rushed for 1,100 yards and 15 TDs.

Vickerson isn't the big name as White, but could serve a significant role for the team. At 6-5, 305 pounds, he has the size and experience to immediately jump into the rotation along the defensive line.

TO all of you, did I say they would ein the west, you big headed american. I said they would be back this year. They have a lot of the peices in place. If Matt Hasselbeck can bouce back and stay healthy, he would have a great ground game to compliment his air attack. Of Course, the 49ers have too many great players not to win, but Arizona just might be that backdoor curveball again this season. It just might be worth watching.

Glad you've got it all figured out. Looks like you need to shore up on who can coach and who can't, because you're obviously a dumba$$ when it comes to that.

the Seahawks the big back to pair with Julius Jones and Justin ForsettJulius Jones will be out of the equation now. Justin Forsett showed his awesome potential in the games that he started, adn he should be the opening day starter. Lendale White will compliment him, and get 10-15 carries, just like Adrian Peterson and Chestor Taylor when AP was drafted. Lendale is better as a complimentary back at this point in his career. They now have a better O-line in a weak NFC west, watch out the Seahawks will be back this year. Even if they Pete Carroll as their head coach
