Seahawks acquired DT Clinton McDonald from the Bengals in exchange for CB Kelly Jennings.

The Bengals got the better end of the deal in terms of talent, but McDonald has a much lower salary than Jennings and could contribute in a rotation. A seventh-round pick in 2009 out of Memphis, McDonald was enjoying his best training camp as a pro in Cincinnati. He'll slot in as a backup "3-technique" in Seattle with a realistic shot of making the final 53.
