The picked up some additional cornerback depth ahead of the 2021 regular season.The Steelers with the on Friday, sending Seattle a 2023 fifth-round pick in exchange for . Witherspoon, who was signed Haydn Fleury Kids Jersey away from the as a free agent earlier this offseason, became expendable after Seattle traded for former first-round pick on Aug. 31.In the interest of brevity, let's grade the trade.The Steelers have lost some of their cornerback depth over the past couple years. is still around, along with and , but left the team in 2019, left in 2020, and left this past offseason.Defensive back depth is of the utmost importance in the modern NFL, so it makes sense that the Steelers wanted to add another body at one of the league's most crucial positions. The Steelers acquired Witherspoon at a relatively low cost, sending the Seahawks a Day 3 pick in a draft two years Brett Pesce Men Jersey out. Witherspoon, though, has yet to really distinguish himself during his four NFL seasons, and saw his snap rate decline to a career-low 32 percent last season. The 49ers saw fit to let him sign with Jamieson Rees Kids Jersey a division rival on a low-cost, one-year deal, and then the Seahawks felt comfortable trading him and eating the signing bonus for a player who will never step on the field for them during a regular season game. So, it seems unlikely that the Steelers got themselves a player who will make that big an impact, but they did at least fill a position of need at relatively low cost.Seattle traded a player it apparently was not going to use and received a future draft pick in return. That's pretty good.But the Seahawks are not exactly stacked at the cornerback position in the first place. Even after the acquisition of Jones, their top players at the position are likely , , and . Is a fifth-round pick two years Michael Ferland Men Jersey down the line going to do more for them than additional depth at a position where they clearly felt Joel Edmundson Men Jersey they still needed help would have? It seems unlikely. The Seahawks also get dinged for signing a player (Witherspoon) who they had seen twice a year for four years to replace their departed No. 1 cornerback (Shaq Griffin), only to find that player's skill set lacking enough that they traded for a different corner (Jones) just before the start of the season and then traded Witherspoon away as well. The series of events is pretty bad, no matter how you slice it.
