Denver Broncos wide receiver Keary Colbert has been traded to the Seattle Seahawks for an undisclosed 2009 late round draft pick, Foxsports.com reports. The Seahawks employ a decimated receivers corps and are desperate to add talent to their unit. Seattle also signed former ‘Hawk Koren Robinson, most famous for his off-field issues, on Tuesday.
This moves makes sense. I had a feeling they would go after one of the Broncos’ guys, although my money was on Darrell Jackson. The Broncos move most of Colbert’s overloaded contract and get lucky to escape a bad free agent signing. The Seahawks will give Colbert a much better chance to resurrect his career. -Thanks to Kerry for the tip in the comments.
UPDATE: ESPN’s Bill Williamson reports that a source close to the situation indicates that the Broncos are looking to bring back WR Clifford Russell to fill the roster spot.
