The Seattle Seahawks' offense took another big hit this past weekend, with center Justin Britt suffering what the team fears is a season-ending ACL injury.

This would be a significant blow to a Seahawks' offensive line that finally begun to gel after Russell Wilson had been running for his life in recent seasons. With the NFL Trade Deadline rapidly approaching, here are three offensive linemen that Seattle could trade for to help fortify the unit up front.

1. Billy Price, C, Cincinnati Bengals

Sitting at 0-8, the Cincinnati Bengals are likely going to be sellers at the deadline. Billy Price was a first-round pick in 2018, but he's only made four starts this season after losing his starting job in training camp. His draft pedigree could make him a worthwhile gamble for Seattle though, and Cincinnati should be looking to stockpile picks as the Bengals are likely headed into a rebuilding period.

2. Joe Looney, C, Dallas Cowboys

Joe Looney is not a household name, but he's been in the NFL since 2012, and started all 16 games for the Dallas Cowboys last season while filling in for Travis Frederick. He's not the flashiest acquisition but if Britt's injury is as serious as it appears, Looney could be a solid option for a Seattle team that needs to fortify the interior of its offensive line. Looney has also only played three snaps for Dallas this season, and is on an expiring deal, so he looks to be expendable.

3. Wes Schweitzer, G, Atlanta Falcons

Wes Schweitzer isn't a big name either, but his versatility could make him an intriguing option in Seattle. Currently starting at guard for the Atlanta Falcons, Schweitzer has also logged snaps at center and tackle in the past. Considering he's on an expiring deal, Atlanta would likely be happy to get some extra draft capital, as he's not likely to be in the Falcons' future plans. Alternatively, if Seattle is willing to pay a much heftier price, the Seahawks could look to target six-time Pro Bowl center Alex Mack.
