Eagles trade Matt Tobin to Seattle for a 5th-round pick

C.J. Prosise running after groin injury but durability remains an issue

Although Tobin was fighting an uphill battle to make the team, he did start against the Buffalo Bills this past Thursday, and was one of the few veterans for the team at offensive tackle.

That changed today, as Tobin is moving from the northeast to the northwest, as the Seahawks added Philadelphia's 2018 seventh round pick and Tobin, while losing its own 2018 fifth round pick.

Tobin can play several positions on the offensive line, and has started 21 games in four National Football League seasons.

With less than three weeks to go until the regular season kicks off, it's still not clear who's going to fill that left tackle spot, but it does look like Seattle has made a decision to throw another name into the mix: Matt Tobin. Fant ended last season as the team's starting left tackle and started the first two preseason games there. He finished 2016 on injured reserve after suffering a late-season knee injury.

Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Monday that second-year player Rees Odhiambo would get a shot to replace Fant. Carroll also said rookie Ethan Pocic would get more reps at left tackle and the Seahawks on Monday also officially signed free agent Tyrus Thompson and plan to use him at left tackle.

A season-ending injury to left tackle George Fant on Friday night has the Seahawks scrambling at the position.
