What have I said about Mingo besides I’m not big on him in another post. Wanted to see what Martin was about. This guy has upside I found out. What if I seem to be in favor of the trade. I’ve seen all the never ending negative **** for weeks now. This trade is layered as to emotion. I’ve always supported Clowney on this board and didn’t want to trade him. But his salary demands are off the chart. Building a roster is a balancing act and without cap space nor the foresight to see who we can or cannot re-sign going forward without attention to it, on that level I am definitely in favor of a trade. There is also a side benefit to not having a disgruntled player on the sidelines for a year. I think the trade was in the range of what teams were willing to offer, probably for the same reasons I just gave. I damn sure didn’t want to GIVE UP a one and two and Clowney. It’s only words now but I am learning the Seahawks biggest need was for an edge rusher and before the trade that organization and fans believed Martin was going to be that guy. Funny but we may have gotten the better edge rusher in this trade but let’s see. That why I just want the season to start. Then there is that little existing knee thing that won’t go away.Funny. You think these guys are good and are seemingly in favor of the trade.
