Trent Dilfer Traded to Cleveland
The man we'll miss...
The man we'll miss...

Posted Mar 5, 2005's Lane Adkins has confirmed that Seattle QB Trent Dilfer has been traded to the Cleveland Browns. Details are unconfirmed at this time, but the likely scenario has the Seahawks receiving a mid-round draft pick in exchange.

Dilfer, an 11-year veteran, was acquired by the Seahawks as an unrestricted free agent on August 3, 2001, after spending the 2000 season with the Baltimore Ravens and helping the Ravens win Super Bowl XXXV. He re-signed with the Seahawks on March 5, 2001.

Dilfer was originally drafted by Tampa Bay in 1994 with the sixth overall selection out of Fresno State following his junior season - ironically, his name was put on the depth chart of current Seahawks Team President Tim Ruskell when Ruskell was Tampa Bay's Director of College Scouting. He spent six seasons in Tampa.

Dilfer spent more and more of his time in Seattle as a backup, as Matt Hasselbeck's maturation and ascendence would determine the QB depth chart. He was always a leader, always an inspiration to his coaches, teammates and fans, and he'll be greatly missed in Seattle - as a person and as a player.

Here's hoping that Trent Dilfer gets some serious starting reps in Cleveland, and that this trade works out for all involved.

Trent, Seahawks.NET bids you a fond farewell. Thank you for gracing our team.
