Seattle gets Miami DE Flemons for CB Richard

CHENEY, Wash. (Aug. 4, 2005) -- The Seattle Seahawks traded cornerback Kris Richard to the Miami Dolphins for defensive end Ronald Flemons.

Richard, a third-round draft pick in 2002, spent his first three seasons in Seattle as a backup and special-teams player.

"It was a roster-maintenance move," Seahawks general manager Tim Ruskell said. "Kris was on the bubble for us. They had inquired about him several times. We're always looking for defensive linemen. ... Obviously, it's not a world-beater trade."

Flemons has played in six games over four seasons with Atlanta and Miami.

"He's a guy who gets off the ball," Ruskell said. "They're looking more for a 3-4 type of defensive lineman."
