- In what can be deemed a class act, the Seattle Seahawks have traded backup quarterback Trent Dilfer to the Cleveland Browns. Dilfer, under contract with Seattle through the 2005 season, has longed for the opportunity to start again in the National Football League.
Seahawks' head coach Mike Holmgren has a gentleman's agreement in place with Dilfer that if the opportunity were to present itself, he would trade the veteran signal-caller to a team where he had the potential to start.
With the team's long-term agreement with quarterback Matt Hasselbeck prior to the free-agent player signing period, any notion that Dilfer would compete for the opportunity to start in Seattle had ended.
Cleveland, seeking a starting-quality quarterback had spoken with the Seahawks on numerous occasions recently about Dilfer. Browns General Manager Phil Savage, knowing the player from his time in Baltimore, was quick to pull the trigger on a deal, which is expected to net the Seahawks a draft selection.
