The Seattle Seahawks are bringing cornerback Sidney Jones back to the Pacific Northwest in a trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Jaguars traded Jones, a 2017 second-round pick out of the University of Washington, to the Seahawks on Monday, Jacksonville announced. Jones was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2017, landed with the Jaguars last season and re-signed on a one-year contract with Jacksonville this offseason.

Jones joins Tre Brown, Tre Flowers, Gavin Heslop, Damarious Randall, D.J. Reed, John Reid, Will Sunderland and Ahkello Witherspoon in Seattle’s cornerback room.
