The Seahawks traded linebacker Barrett Ruud to the Saints on Monday for an undisclosed draft pick.
Ruud signed with the Seahawks during the offseason and entered training camp in a battle for the starting position, but the emergence of rookie Bobby Wagner made Ruud expendable for the Seahawks.
Ruud was originally a second-round pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2005 draft. He played his first six seasons in Tampa Bay before spending last year with the Tennessee Titans. He's played in 104 games in his career, including 77 starts.
