BREAKING NEWS: Seattle Seahawks Will Sign One Of The Most Experienced Running Backs
DeAngelo Williams ran for 4.2 yards for each convey in his two-year stretch with the Pittsburgh Steelers, yet the vast majority of the offseason has passed regardless he winds up without a group. A few players may take the insight and resign, yet not Williams. Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk reports that he disclosed to ESPN’s Adam Schefter that he will play next season.
The Seahawks are unquestionably thin at running back. Thomas Rawls and Eddie Lacy combined to play just 14 diversions last season, and keeping in mind that C.J. Prosise demonstrated a ton of guarantee in averaging 5.7 yards for every surge, he conveyed the ball just 30 times all season and likely isn’t prepared for a highlighted part.
Elegant accompanies his own particular arrangement of concerns. His weight has turned out to be problematic to the point that the Seahawks needed to incorporate arrangements in his agreement that boosted thinning down.
Seattle hasn’t demonstrated any enthusiasm for including a running back now, yet Williams is most likely the best one remaining available. Having played with Cam Newton he comprehends the novel open doors a running quarterback can make. In the event that Rawls or Lacy get harmed amid preparing camp, at that point Williams may be the substitution John Schneider calls.
The Seahawks have had a lot of progress pulling runners off of the piece stack in the past. Justin Forsett gave the Seahawks more than 1,000 yards over the 2009 and 2010 seasons and filled in for some significant spot begins. In a sense, Marshawn Lynch was a correspondingly underestimated resource.
Williams likely won’t have a similar achievement Lynch did on the off chance that he ever achieves Seattle, however he could be a profitable expansion to a powerless backfield.
