Pete Carroll optimistic on trade for lineman

The Seattle Seahawks sent only a seventh-round draft choice to Philadelphia for veteran offensive lineman Stacy Andrews.

The price was low, but the trade still qualified as a short-term disappointment when Andrews did not hold down a starting job on an offensive line that used 11 starting combinations.

Coach Pete Carroll thinks the Seahawks can and probably will reap long-term benefits from the deal as Andrews transitions to right tackle for the 2011 season.

“Stacy is a legitimate factor at right tackle,” Carroll said from the NFL owners meeting. “That is his natural position. We brought him in to play right tackle and when Max Unger got hurt, it necessitated the move right away and he didn’t get a chance to play right tackle.”

Andrews earned $1.15 million from the Seahawks last season. The Eagles paid a $4.1 million bonus to him. His deal calls for $5.25 million in salary for 2011. It’s tough to envision an NFL team paying that much for a backup. The Seahawks do have an opening at right tackle after chopping off the final year from starter Sean Locklear’s contract.

“That’s a spot that Stacy will compete at,” Carroll said. “That to me is an exciting opportunity. His body type and his mentality and his background, even though he played guard at Philadelphia, he really is a natural tackle. Hard-working guy and all that kind of stuff. We’ll see how that works out.”
