On a day known for cuts the Seattle Seahawks executed a trade.
The Seahawks announced Saturday they have sent an undisclosed future draft pick to the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for defensive tackle D'Anthony Smith. The deal is pending a physical.
A third-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft Smith made little impact in three seasons with the Jaguars. He appeared in eight games last season collecting the first 10 tackles of his career before landing on injured reserve in November with a head injury.
The Seahawks cut 22 players Saturday to get down to the 53-man limit. The biggest surprise was their decision to release wide receiver Chris Harper the team's fourth-round pick in April's draft. Harper was outplayed by Jermaine Kearse a 2012 undrafted free agent who turned heads this summer. Harper could be moved to the practice squad if he isn't claimed on waivers.
