The Seattle Seahawks did not trade away Darrell Taylor, who was drafted by the Seahawks in 2020. It wasn't something most people were expecting the team to do, but according to Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated, the Seahawks considering trading Taylor away, but had a change of heart after losing Uchenna Nwosu to a season-ending injury.
“Seattle’s one final team I’ve had my eye on,” Breer wrote on October 27, 2023. “They were open to dealing Darrell Taylor before Uchenna Nwosu was hurt, and have also been sniffing around on adding some depth on the edge. So I’d expect that the Seahawks will be active on the phone over the next four days.”

So happy for him to get a big sack in a big moment right there!
