Seattle Seahawks pursuing RBs Devonta Freeman, Carlos Hyde

Seahawks offer to running back Devonta Freeman was worth up to $4M

The Seahawks have offered him a one-year deal worth up to $4 million, according to Silver. Perine could use a year to develop, but adding Freeman to the running back room would make things awfully crowded. Freeman returned in 2019 and started 14 games for the Falcons, but struggled throughout the year, rushing for only 656 yards and two touchdowns on 3.6 yards per carry.

NFL Network reported the Seahawks have also talked to free agent Carlos Hyde, who ran for 1,070 yards with the Houston Texans last season. The 2018 season was a lost one for Freeman, as he only appeared in two games before suffering a season-ending Achilles injury.

A fourth-round pick by the Falcons in 2014 who was twice named to the Pro Bowl, Freeman posted back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in 2015-16. Freeman is also an excellent receiver, having caught 257 passes for 2,015 yards and 11 touchdowns during his six-year career.

MYANMAR authorities have made Southeast Asia's biggest-ever seizure of synthetic drugs, reported the Vietnam News Agency. We have witnessed a displacement scenario play-out with the supply of methamphetamine over the past few years.

The Seahawks have a full crew of running backs already under contract and are considered bringing back Marshawn Lynch, per reports.

The Seahawks now have six running backs on their roster, but two of the three RBs to have ever appeared in an National Football League game (Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny) are on the mend, still recovering from injury.

General manager John Schneider told KJR-AM in Seattle earlier this month that Carson (hip) is expected to be ready by Week 1 but that Penny's recovery from reconstructive knee surgery might sideline him beyond then.
