On Tuesday, the Broncos announced the trading of Keary Colbert to the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for a conditional pick in the 2009 NFL Draft.
Colbert signed with the Broncos this offseason, and played in both of the Broncos’ games this season.
He did not record a catch.
The Seahawks receiving corps has been decimated by injuries early this season. Nate Burleson and Ben Obamanu are out for the season. Bobby Engram and Deion Branch have injuries that will most likely hold them out until after Seattle’s bye on Sept. 28, according to The Seattle Times. To top it off, receivers Seneca Wallace and Logan Payne were injured in the Seahawks’ Week 2 contest against the 49ers.
Colbert becomes the second former Bronco to join the Seahawks in the last few days — Samie Parker, who was in Denver during training camp, signed with the team last Wednesday before being released three days later.
