NFL Trade Rumors: Seahawks Getting Jared Odrick While Trading Richard Sherman? Patriots Keeping Malcolm Butler?

Jared Odrick, formerly with the Jacksonville Jaguars but now a free agent, is at the center of recent NFL trade rumors. Apparently, the Seattle Seahawks are interested in signing him. This is an intriguing development since the Seahawks are seemingly bent on trading Richard Sherman. Meanwhile there also some rumors saying that the New England Patriots are holding on to Malcolm Butler.

Does This Seahawks Deal Make Sense?

It seems that while they are negotiating a trade deal for the high-priced Richard Sherman, the Seahawks are also thinking of signing the steep-priced Jared Odrick. The former Jaguars defensive end was released by the team because of his expensive price. According to some NFL trade rumors, the Seahawks are dropping the price of Richard Sherman to obtain a trade deal. Now, they are apparently eyeing Jared Odrick who has a high tag price. Does that make sense?

These NFL trade rumors are saying that the Seahawks want to improve their defensive line. This is the reason for a possible Jared Odrick deal. They can also use Odrick as a pass-rushing tackle. Some observers believe that this deal makes sense as the Seahawks are looking for replacements for John Jenkins and Tony McDaniel.

Will The Patriots Be Able To Hold On To Butler?

Meanwhile, it appears that the New England Patriots are not willing to part ways with their cornerback Malcolm Butler. There are NFL trade rumors suggesting that the Patriots will likely keep Butler on their roster if they are only getting 2018 draft picks. But some observers believe the trade situation will come to a head as the NFL draft begins on April 27.

The New Orleans Saints have expressed interest in getting Malcolm Butler. But NFL trade rumors say that the Saints are not willing to sign him by April 21. This makes the sign-and-trade option the only way Butler will become part of the Saints' roster this offseason. The Patriots' cornerback has already visited with the Saints. But unless he signs a restricted free agent tender from the Patriots, the trade deal won't push through.
