Update on the Leonard Williams trade – The Seattle Seahawks successfully secure a lower priced deal from the New York Giants.


On Sunday, there was a game between the New York Giants and the New York Jets. The Giants lost to the Jets with a score of 10-13 at MetLife Stadium. As a result, the Giants are currently in last place in the NFC East, which is typical for them. Due to this, Joe Schoen has decided to make changes to the team’s defensive guards.

The sixth overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft, Leonard Williams, has recently joined a new division. This will be the second time he has moved teams in his career, joining a young and ambitious defense. Former Hawks linebacker K.J. Wright mentioned this about five years ago. Despite this, Williams is pleased with the trade and sees it as a significant move for his team.

An action taken prior to the set time limit!

The Giants made the decision to part ways with Leonard Williams, a defensive lineman they acquired in the 2015 NFL draft, before the trade deadline date of October 31 for this season. According to NFL insider Tom Pelissero, Williams’ contract was restructured and filed today in order to facilitate a trade.

The struggling Giants made a trade on Monday, sending Williams to the Seattle Seahawks in return for two draft picks: a second-round pick in 2024 and a fifth-round pick in 2025. According to a report, the Giants paid Williams a signing bonus of $9,352,778 today, while Seattle will only owe him $647,222 for the remainder of the season.

The Seahawks offense has suffered a major setback as their top wide receiver, D.K. Metcalf, is now listed as questionable for their game against the Cardinals due to a hip and rib injury. This means that Seattle will be without several key players.

The Seattle Seahawks’ offense has received a significant hit with the news that their primary wide receiver, D.K. Metcalf, may not be able to play in their upcoming match against the Cardinals due to injuries in his hip and ribs. As a result, the team will be missing multiple key starters.

In 2021, Williams signed a three-year $63 million contract with the Giants. He is currently in his final season with the team. The Hawks will definitely improve their defensive front with this new trade.

Key points to consider following the trade.

The Giants traded defensive lineman Leonard Williams for a second-round draft pick in 2024 and a fifth-rounder in 2025. Williams had the highest salary cap hit of $32 million this season. The Hawks will benefit from acquiring Williams as they are in need of help on their defensive front, especially after placing linebacker Uchenna Nwosu on injured reserve.

Seattle Seahawks

On October 2, 2023 in East Rutherford, New Jersey, USA, the Seattle Seahawks (NFL team) played against the New York Giants in a game of American football. During the game, Seahawks linebacker Jordyn Brooks (number 56) recovered a fumble after defensive end Mario Edwards Jr. (number 97) stripped the ball from Giants quarterback Daniel Jones (number 8) at MetLife Stadium.

It is probable that the experienced lineman will join in the rotation with Mario Edwards Jr., Dre’Mont Jones, and Jarran Reed. This addition will give the team a stronger and more adaptable defensive front.

Williams expressed his gratitude for being a member of the Giants for several years and shared his enthusiasm for joining the top team in the NFC West, the Hawks, on social media.
