Team No. 2 who could trade for Minnesota Vikings OLB Za'Darius Smith

Seattle Seahawks

The Vikings would rather not trade Za'Darius Smith to a team in the NFC, but perhaps if one gave them the right offer, they'd bite. The Seattle Seahawks were widely applauded for their moves in the 2023 NFL Draft.

They landed the best cornerback in the class with Devon Witherspoon and also scored the best wide receiver in Jaxon Smith-Njigba. They were a playoff team a season ago, and after their solid draft, many believe they can go even deeper in 2023.

To help them get there, adding another veteran pass rusher could come in quite handy. The Seahawks have two good ones in Darrell Taylor and Uchenna Nwosu, but behind them are nothing but unproven younglings.

Having Smith on the roster would give them a veteran backup/rotation piece that wouldn't just provide insurance but can also keep the other two fresh. It would be a three-headed monster that could terrorize NFC opponents.

Picturing Za'Darius Smith in a Seahawks uniform isn't a hard thing to do. Players seem to love playing out there and Smith would be part of a unit that could restore the Seahawks to having a tough defense the way they did in their Super Bowl years.
