Chargers get a younger faster safety who can hopefully improve their disappointing passing defense this season. They also get a highly talented and young QB that can challenge Hurns for the starting spot with Wilson. They lose a very highly rated LT and gain expensive project in Okung, but the former 1st rounder definitely has the potential to start with some run block upgrading. The Chargers also give a 4th round pick in this years draft to make up for some of the youth that the Hawks are losing and the Chargers are receiving.
The Seahawks get a overall great player in Weddle to make up for the loss of Thomas. They lose speed and youth, but gain a solid tackler who has Man and Zone at a 80+ rating. The biggest aquisition in this trade may be Antonio Gates who currently leads the Chargers in yards, receptions, and touchdowns. The Hawks are hoping he can bring that production to their 21st ranked pass offense. Seattle also hopes that the addition of Gates (61 Run Blk) and Brown (84 PBK, 86 RBK, 84 IBL) will improve their 26th ranked rushing offense by replacing the overpriced (8.62M) and poor run blocking (75 RBK) Okung.
