Apparently, the injury-recoveries for both Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny are not going how the Seahawks would like. Seattle popped up in a couple rumors yesterday that they’re shopping the market for running back help.
According to Mike Silver of the NFL Network, the Seahawks have spoken to former Houston Texans running back Carlos Hyde this offseason. Hyde is coming off the best his six-year career last year, rushing for over 1-thousand yards and scoring six touchdowns…
Seattle also reportedly spoke to former Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman. Add Marshawn Lynch to the discussion, and the Seahawks are obviously looking for added depth.
Chris Carson is expected to be read for the start of the season, but he’s coming off a non-displaced fractured hip. Rashaad Penny is not expected to be ready as he works to come back from a torn ACL.
Steve Kerr surprises Seahawks team video meeting
Coach Pete Carroll has done his best to keep the virtual team meetings interesting. Yesterday was no exception. With the sports world buzzing about the Michael Jordon Documentary “The Last Dance”, Carroll reached out to a friend for the inside scoop…

College football without fans for Cougs and Dawgs? Could be!
The two major colleges in Washington are trying to plan for a fall football season with the real possibility of no fans…
For Washington State, that means an empty Martin Stadium with a capacity of 32,952 fans and an empty Husky Stadium with a capacity of over 70-thousand.
UW Athletic Director Jen Cohen says they’re bracing for a dip of nearly 4.4-million dollars in gate revenue. WSU AD Pat Chun says the only certainty “is that there is going to be an impact.”
Surveys nationwide show the majority of fans want to be able to return to stadiums and cheer on their favorite teams. The hard part will be whether they’re allowed to go back.
Cohen said, “I think the interesting thing about this is that it could potentially vary based on the state that you’re living in.” The US will be following the lead of pro sports now competing in Europe and Asia. They began play without fans and are slowly allowing fans with severe limitations.
One thing is for sure. If there is a college football season, it will look like nothing we’ve ever seen.
