Seahawks target from the Vikings

This one will be a shocker to most, but hear me out on this one. Yes, the Seahawks have the talented rookie, Kenneth Walker III who just eclipsed the 1,000 rush yards this season even after being limited at the start of the season due to a hernia injury. However, with Rashaad Penny suffering a season-ending injury and will be a free agent this offseason, it will not hurt the Seahawks to see how much will it take to get Mattison to play alongside Ken Walker.

Seattle was very thin at the running back position this year, that was evident when Walker went down with an ankle injury on Week 13 against the Rams, and the Seahawks were left with Travis Homer and Deejay Dallas combo on Week 14 against the Panthers, and with little to no success on the ground.

By signing Mattison, the Seahawks can ensure that they have a better depth at the position as well as having a better compliment to Ken Walker, as Mattison has proven that whenever he is tasked to handle the ball when Vikings’ RB1 Dalvin Cook cannot play, he is more than capable to handle the load. Of course, this is no guarantee as Mattison will most likely look for a starting gig, but the running back free agents this offseason are so deep, that he might be forced to take a tandem job, and Seahawks should pounce on that.
