The Tennessee Titans have traded LenDale White to the Seattle Seahawks, reuniting the hefty running back with his USC coach Pete Carroll.
The Seahawks traded a fourth-round pick (104th overall) and a sixth-round pick (176th overall) to the Titans for picks 111 and 185 plus White and defensive lineman Kevin Vickerson. Essentially, the Titans gave White and Vickerson away in exchange for getting to pick a little earlier in the fourth and sixth rounds.
White, who was phased out of the Titans’ offense in favor of Chris Johnson, had made no secret of the fact that he wanted to be traded, and the Titans had made no secret of the fact that they were willing to get rid of him. The only question was whether another team was interested in his services.
It turns out that the Seahawks were, and Carroll will see if he can turn White into a productive NFL running back.
