Kentwan Balmer traded to Seahawks

Ninjames' Note: Little late on this, but got this fanpost moved to the front page for now. I'm not happy with this whole thing, myself. Though, I would like to note that "next to nothing in return" is a bit misleading considering WR Kyle Williams and RB Anthony Dixon both came in the sixth round this past draft, and seventh round pick Ricky Jean Francois is vying for a future starting spot at an integral 3-4 position.

According to ESPN.com the 49ers have agreed to trade Kentwan Balmer to the Seattle Seahawks for a 2011 6th round pick. Quite a statement to send a former 1st round pick to a rival for next to nothing in return. He was projected to come in as our backup defensive end, so a bit of depth is lost, but overall the team is not rocked too much by this loss.
