Seattle Seahawks:  Hawks trade WR Kevin Norwood to Carolina for future pick

norwoodThe 2014 fourth round draft pick Kevin Norwood was traded by the Seattle Seahawks to the Carolina Panthers.  Compensation includes a future draft pick in 2017.

The Hawks were planning on cutting the former Alabama WR, but went ahead and took the deal from Carolina rather than lose him for nothing.

“Kevin gives us another player to compete at the wide receiver position,” Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman said in a statement. “He has the size you look for along with toughness and smarts. We studied him a lot going into last year’s draft and we look forward to having him as part of our receiving corps.”

Carolina lost Pro-Bowl Wideout Kelvin Benjamin due to a knee injury.  With few options available, they picked up Norwood for pretty much nothing.

In 9 games, Norwood  had nine catches for 102 yards and played 16% of the team’s offense snaps.
