The Seahawks have acquired third-year tight end Jacob Hollister in a trade with the New England Patriots.

NFL Draft: All 11 Seahawks picks | UDFA tracker | UW/WSU players picked

As part of the trade, which was listed on the league’s transaction wire, Seattle gives up a 2020 seventh-round pick. It’s the second 2020 pick Seattle has traded this week; the team gave a 2020 sixth-round pick to the Minnesota Vikings Saturday to trade back into the final round of the 2019 NFL Draft and select Hawaii wide receiver John Ursua. Next year holds no shortage of draft capital for Seattle: the Seahawks held 12 picks prior to both trades.

Hollister (6-feet-4, 245-pounds) has appeared in 23 games for New England, including two starts. He has 94 yards on eight receptions.

The addition of Hollister gives the Seahawks six tight ends. The team has four veterans – Will Dissly, Ed Dickson, Nick Vannett and Tyrone Swoopes – and reportedly signed undrafted rookie free agent Justin Johnson.
