FOX Sports is reporting that Charlie Frye, the Browns starting quarterback two days ago, has been traded to the Seattle Seahawks. Meanwhile, Profootballtalk.com is suggesting that Seahawks defensive end Bryce Fisher has been traded to the Titans for a draft pick. The obvious-but-as-yet-unreported inference is that the Seahawks shipped the Titans draft pick to the Browns for Frye.
The most intriguing upshot of the Frye trade is whether it will lead to Seneca Wallace being used as a wide receiver instead of quarterback. Mike Holmgren made some noise about this possibility in his press conference this week. As for the Titans, they acquire in Bryce Fisher a high-character guy who is well liked by Titans general manager Mike Reinfeldt, who -- not coincidentally -- worked for the Seahawks last year.
Stay tuned for updates in the comments section as the details of these trades emerge.
