The #Seattle Seahawks are looking to make moves to bolster their Super Bowl chances this season. The Seahawks are looking to make a trade before the deadline or sign a free agent to address their roster needs.

Houston Texans [VIDEO] left tackle #Duane Brown finally ended his holdout, KHOU11 reported. He is now training with the team, but it remains to be seen whether or not he will spend the entire season in Houston.

Seattle Seahawks to chase Duane Brown?

Brown, who missed the first six games of the 2017 NFL season, has one guaranteed year left on his contract with the Texans. Houston is aware the 32-year-old LT could leave after this season, which might force them to trade him instead of running the risk of losing the veteran for nothing in free agency.

And if the Texans decide to part ways with Brown, there will be no shortage of suitors. According to the Seattle PI, the Seahawks are expected to reach out to Houston about a possible deal.

The Seahawks are looking to add a high-caliber left tackle after George Fant went down with a knee injury that will force him to miss the entire season. Brown is capable of filling the void left by Fant, but it remains to be seen whether or not Seattle will take a gamble on him given his $9.4 million salary this season.

ESPN insider Adam Schefter reported that the veteran inked a one-year deal. He is expected to play an important role at defensive end after Seattle lost Cliff Avril to a neck and spine injury.

Freeney spent the majority of his career with the Indianapolis Colts before spending last season with the Atlanta Falcons. The Seahawks are hoping that Freeney will play a vital role, similar to how he helped the Falcons during their Super Bowl run last season.

The 37-year-old defensive end played 15 games for the Falcons last season, where he recorded three sacks and seven combined tackles. In his 15-year career, the Connecticut standout has tallied 122.5 sacks, which is the third-highest among active players. Julius Peppers has 150, while DeMarcus Ware has 138.5 career sacks.

The seven-time Pro Bowler could make his Seattle debut on Sunday (Oct. 29) against the #Houston Texans. The Seahawks are currently second in the NFC West standings with their 4-2 record. The Los Angeles Rams are currently on top of the division with at 5-2.
