The Seattle Seahawks' search for a starting left tackle continues to ramp up ahead of Tuesday's trade deadline, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday, per sources involved in the situation.

To make a move for a blindside blocker, Seattle would be willing to part ways with tight end Jimmy Graham for salary-cap purposes, per Rapoport. The team has had trade talks centered around the tight end, Rapoport said on NFL Network's NFL GameDay Kickoff. The Seahawks have less than $2 million in cap space. Graham, in the final year of his contract, has a $10 million cap hit for this season.

The Seahawks continue to believe Graham is a key part of the offense, but if it would net them a left tackle in return Seattle would be willing to move the starting tight end.
