Veteran guard Gabe Jackson is officially a Seahawk.

The Raiders agreed to trade Jackson to the Seahawks last Wednesday, but the deal didn’t become official before the week was out. Confirmation of the deal came on Sunday with an announcement from Seattle about the new member of their offensive line.

Jackson started 99 games in seven seasons with the Raiders, so he brings a great deal of experience with him to his new team. He’s the first new addition to the offensive line for the Seahawks this offseason, but they did re-sign centers Ethan Pocic and Kyle Turner.

The Seahawks are sending their 2021 fifth-round pick to the Raiders in the deal. Seattle now has three picks — a second-rounder, a fourth-rounder, and a seventh-rounder — in this year’s draft.

  1. They would’ve spent the pick on the O-Line, so I’m good with the decision. Jackson has also played on the Left side, so there is some flexibility in his assignments, when needed.

  2. All the Las Vegas Raiders fans are scratching their collective heads this whole offseason. Gruden and Mayock seem to be shipping off/cutting Pro-bowl level players. One teams trash is another teams treasure.

  3. As a Raiders fan just can tell you good luck, we were dead last in 3&1 conversions, Gabe run blocking has been diminished over the years

  4. Maybe the Raiders OL woes were not due to their Pro Bowl lineman they had but rather their OL coach Tom Cable who the Seahawk fans rode out of town because he was horrendous. Hey we told ya so when you signed him.

  5. Penny-pinching Mode will likely trade down over and over again on draft day for more picks.

  6. next off season should be interesting in Seattle…they will win some games but are not legit…Russ gonna be mad!

  7. He has 2 years left on the contract with both years at about $9.5M. He can be cut, or traded without any dead money hitting the Cap.

    This is a good move by the Seahawks in that they are clearly showing Russell that they want to better protect him. His rankings for “pass protection “ is elite, even if the run blocking seems to have dropped off in the last few seasons.

    The same could’ve been said about Brian Schottenheimer from all his former employers.

  9. No other team would trade for him. Penny-pinching Mode probably made another pound foolish acquisition.
