Seahawks reportedly want to sign Devonta Freeman with Rashaad Penny injured

Houston Texans running back Carlos Hyde scores a touchdown after catching a pass against the Buffalo Bills during the second half of an NFL wild-card playoff football game Saturday Jan. 4 2020 in Houston

The veteran running back is looking for more money, however.

The Texans acquired Hyde from the Kansas City Chiefs past year in a trade on cutdown day in exchange for offensive lineman Martinas Rankin.

A two-time Pro Bowler and All-Pro selection in 2015, Freeman spent the first six seasons of his career with the Falcons.

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.

Hyde projects more as an early-down running back, but he did catch 59 passes in 2017 so he would have some ability to handle the third-down/two-minute role if needed as well. The Seahawks reportedly have had conversations with Marshawn Lynch.

Disney World Will Submit Reopening Plans and Date Next Week
A Sea World representative stated in today's conference with Vice President Mike Pence that the park hopes to reopen by late June. After Universal's proposal presentation today, the question on everyone's mind was when Disney World would be submitting their's.

With the offseason still in a virtual format and no real clear indication on the healthy statuses of Carson, Penny and Prosise, the Seahawks are smart to test the waters on who might still be out there as possible contributors to Seattle's backfield. Atlanta averaged just 85.1 yards per game for the year.

Freeman earned a contract that made him the highest-paid running back in the National Football League at the time in 2017 in the wake of Atlanta's run to the Super Bowl in 2016, a season in which he was named to the Pro Bowl for the second straight year.

SiriusXM NFL Radio first reported Seattle's offer to Freeman.

However, he failed to rush for over 1,000 yards that season and his production as a receiver dropped as well.

The Seahawks open the 2020 regular season against the Falcons in Atlanta. Coach Pete Carroll said the procedure to fix the injury was "more than just a normal ACL" surgery.
