Would it be a good move?

Next move for Irvin could be a trade to Atlanta

Earlier this year, a report emerged that Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett wanted to be traded to the Falcons. Another Seahawks pass-rusher ultimately could be the guy who gets shipped to Atlanta.

Per a league source, chatter already has emerged regarding a possible trade that would send linebacker Bruce Irvin to the Falcons, reuniting him with coach Dan Quinn, the former defensive coordinator in Seattle.

Irvin, who was born in Atlanta, was a first-round pick of the Seahawks in 2012 — the same year they added linebacker Bobby Wagner in round two and quarterback Russell Wilson in round three.

With the Seahawks not planning to exercise the fifth-year option Irvin, he could be traded to a new team during the draft, and that team could then exercise the option before the May 3 deadline.

Irvin had eight sacks as a rookie in 2012, and he added 6.5 in 2014.

I would welcome the addition of Bruce Irvin to Atlanta. Would just have to hope we could keep B.J. out of trouble in the A. I remember BJ was into some bad stuff when he was at Stephenson High School. Hopefully he has broken those ties.

That was my thinking conditional pick that can be upgraded to a 3rd.

I think Falcons wanted Irvin, but I never really saw the trade as plausible given the probability that they'd select a similar player in the 1st round. They did exactly that with Beasley, which probably kills this trade. Maybe we re-visit in October. But I don't see the Seahawks just giving Irvin away, especially since they might decide to re-sign him next year if Michael Bennett is still complaining about getting a new contract.

I'm really not just trying to be negative. Doesn't it seem like each year we have more holes to fill than the previous year??

Well it seems that way but its not actually true. When your main stars
are Ryan & Julio you just feel like you gave up a lot to get them. Maybe someone will jump out this year!!
