Seahawks Deal Wilson to the Ravens

The Seattle Seahawks trade 2007 second-round cornerback Josh Wilson to the Baltimore Ravens for a conditional 5th round draft choice in the 2011 NFL Draft

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Seattle Seahawks have traded veteran cornerback Josh Wilson to the Baltimore Ravens for a conditional fifth-round draft pick.

Depending on how many games Wilson starts for Baltimore, the pick could increase to a fourth-round selection.

Wilson (5-9, 192) has started 24 games for the Seahawks since being chosen in the second-round of the 2007 NFL Draft out of the University of Maryland. In 40 career games, Wilson has totaled 130 tackles, with a pair of quarterback sacks and 6 interceptions, returning 3 for touchdowns.

Wilson has also averaged 25 yards on 94 kick returns with one touchdown.

The Ravens have been in the market for a starting-caliber cornerback after losing Dominique Foxworth for the season to a torn ACL.

Wilson was projected to either start or be the Seahawks' nickel cornerback. With this trade, 2006 first-round cornerback Kelly Jennings is the likely starter opposite Marcus Trufant, with Jordan Babineaux, Roy Lewis, and Walter Thurmond vying for the nickel role.
