Seahawks add LenDale White in trade

RENTON, Wash. -- NFL teams had traded lots of choices since the 2010 draft began, but no veteran players had changed teams.

WhiteThat changed Saturday when Seattle acquired running back LenDale White and defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson from the Titans. Seattle sent the 104th and 176th choices to Tennessee for the 111th, 185th choice, White and Vickerson.

Seattle needed a running back and White played for Seahawks coach Pete Carroll at USC. The Seahawks and Titans shared another connection. Both teams' general managers worked together previously in Seattle and Green Bay.

NFL teams selected no running backs in the third round and Seattle didn't have a choice in the round, anyway. White fills an immediate need. We'll speak with Carroll about a specific role later in the day.
