Seattle Seahawks have played a huge role in this season's drama already after they decided to trade starting center Max Unger to New Orleans Saints for Jimmy Graham last week.
It was a huge move that had all of the league and its fans talking for days. Now that the dust has settled somewhat on the deal, it is high time we heard what one of the key players in the deal thought about the trade.
Max Unger is an outstanding run blocker and his trade away from Seattle has led to many Seahawks fans voicing their concern that the NFC Champions are trying to move slowly away from running the ball.
Regardless of that, Unger's main focus is now on making the Saints into the dominant ground force that Seattle has become. But just because Unger says that challenge is one that excites him, don't think for one minute that the talented center wanted to leave Seattle.
Speaking at the weekend about the trade, Unger revealed that he was initially "bummed" about having to leave Seattle, citing how much he has invested in Seattle as one of the main reasons.
"I've had so much invested in what's happened up here for so long, and to get a call like this out of left field, I was bummed," Unger revealed, NFL.com reported.
But despite being angered by his shock move to the Saints, Unger says he has now come to terms with it and he explained that he is looking forward to the opportunity to live somewhere new.
"But at the same time, it's another opportunity to go somewhere I've never lived before and play for a team who has had a lot of success, and I've heard only good things about. So it's really about trying to be positive and just kind of pick up and play some good football still."
