The Seahawks have made their final decision on LJ Collier.

The Seattle Seahawks have decided to keep their former first-round choice in the 2019 NFL Draft. LJ Collier remained on the roster when the trade deadline expired on Tuesday, November 2. Unless he is released unexpectedly, he will most likely finish the season with the Seahawks.

The Seahawks will keep Collier past the trade deadline, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler. He stated that the team was not shopping the defensive end and that despite his inactivity, they still valued his services. Another team would have to desire Collier to complete the transaction, according to Gregg Bell of the Tacoma News Tribune.

The 4 p.m. ET trade deadline passed without a deal being reached. Collier will stay with the Seahawks, but he will most likely be inactive for each game unless the defensive line suffers a spate of injuries.

Collier was previously reported to be available by an NFL insider.

“A former first-round pick, Collier has only played in two games this season despite racking up three sacks last year,” Rapoport wrote in an NFL Media story. “The Seahawks have discussed Collier at various times this season and in the offseason, despite the fact that he is only 26 years old. A fresh start could be beneficial to all parties, especially with so many teams in need of edge support.”

Collier only played in two games before the Week 9 bye, despite recording three sacks and seven quarterback hits in 2020. He has three tackles and two quarterback hits in two games against the Titans and Rams. Before the week off, Collier was inactive for every other game on the 2021 schedule.

Rashaad Penny was also kept on the roster by Seattle.

The Seahawks were rumored to be considering trading running back Rashaad Penny before the trade deadline. After Derrick Henry’s foot injury, ESPN’s Adam Schefter mentioned him as a trade option for the Titans, while Fowler joined 710 Sports. ESPN Jake from Seattle and… Nokia News – Quick Recap
