Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll admitted that the Seahawks were interested in trading for Carson Palmer this off-season. Carroll was Carson's coach at USC during Carson's Heisman trophy season.  Carroll elaborated:

"We asked about it early on. I have great regard for Carson and wanted to know what their stance was and wanted to make sure we were at least on top of the opportunities and there was no opportunity at the time. I thought it could be a possibility. With the background I had with Carson and the thoughts about him it was something we were definitely considering."

Mike Brown told the Seahawks that he had no plans to trade Carson and they turned their attention elsewhere, eventually signing quarterback Tavaris Jackson. Carroll did go on to say that, although very interested in Carson, they would not have agreed to send a first round pick in 2012 and a conditional second round pick in 2013.
