It is growingly increasingly unlikely that the Seahawks bring Chris Carson Back. Carson wanted a contract last off-season. He wanted to have some sort of dialogue going into camp. Nothing ever materialized. He isn’t particularly happy with it either.
As of mid-January, Chris Carson no longer follows the Seahawks on social media. One has to wonder if Carson took this as a sign of disrespect. He gave 100% every time he got the ball. He worked his butt off to get back onto the field after injuries. He may be feeling taken for granted.
Carson is admittedly my favorite player on the offense. Shoot, I guess that is likely to become ‘he was my favorite.’ It still stings to say out loud. Regardless, it is time for the team to look forward. They are nowhere near ready to compete next year and have very little resources to rebuild.
Seahawks need to invest wisely
This means they have to be very careful with how they invest their money. Because of this, I have compiled a list of 4 running backs that the Seahawks should reach out to. All 4 of these players should be available for anything between a one-year to a three-year deal. The max dollar per year amount I see any of these players getting is around $5 million.
This makes all 4 of these players significantly more affordable than what Carson is likely to get on the open market. Without further ado, let’s dive into the 4 running backs Seattle needs to get in contact with this offseason.
