Seahawks re-sign running Back Chris Carson

(SEATTLE)- According to, the Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson signed a multi-year contract with Seattle during 2021 free agency. By re-signing Carson, one of their top players to hit free agency, the Seahawks answered a big question about their offense heading into 2021. Carroll spoke at the end of the season about wanting to run the ball more effectively in 2021, but doing so is a lot easier said than done without a top-tier running back. Both Carson and Carlos Hyde became free agents with the start of the new league year—Hyde ended up agreeing to terms on a deal with Jacksonville—and had the Seahawks lost both of their top two backs from the 2020 season, running back would have become a position of need this offseason, even with a healthy Rashaad Penny offering another quality option in the backfield.
