Seahawks close to acquiring Andrews

Help for the Seahawks’ injury-depleted offensive line appears to be on the way.

Although the deal has not been finalized, the Seahawks are expected to acquire Stacy Andrews in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles. The 6-foot-7, 342-pound Andrews would arrive an opportune time, since first-round draft choice Russell Okung remains sidelined with a sprained ankle; Chester Pitts just returned to practice last week as the final phase of his recovery from having microfracture knee surgery last season; and Ray Willis (knee) was placed on injured reserve as part of the roster cuts on Saturday.

With those three unavailable, converted guard Mansfield Wrotto started the last two preseason games at left tackle.

Andrews was a fourth-round draft choice by the Cincinnati Bengals in 2004 and played last season for the Eagles.
