The Philadelphia Eagles have traded wide receiver/tight end J.J. Arcega-Whiteside to the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for defensive back Ego Amadi.

The Seahawks were planning on releasing Amadi as part of the first wave of roster cuts, according to ESPN, but instead found a trade partner and a player that plays a position that has been a position of need for the Seahawks due to injuries.

Whiteside, a second-round pick out of Stanford in 2019, has a combined 16 catches for 290 yards and a touchdown in 40 games over three seasons. The Eagles moved the 6-foot-2, 237-pound Arcega-Whiteside to tight end earlier this offseason.
