The Seahawks, Tuesday, traded one under-sized defensive end for an even more under-sized defensive end in Chris Clemons. Clemons (240 lbs) makes Nick Reed (245 lbs) look like Goliath. He has had some success rushing the passer, and brings a 4th round pick along with him. I don't see any down side to this deal since Tapp is a guy who will never reach the Pro Bowl. Try-hard, small pass rushers are a dime a dozen.
I like Tapp, and believe he was among the most consistent players on defense last season. I wish him the best, but you won't see me mention him here again.
