Listening to that the Seahawks' contract talks with Devonta Freeman have hit a standstill and that Carlos Hyde might now be a more sensible option to sign as a veteran operating again. Seattle needs to add a veteran RB however doesn't need to break the financial institution to take action.

Freeman, 28, is nearly two years younger than Hyde, though the latter had the better season in 2019. Hyde rushed for over 1,000 yards with the Houston Texans and averaged four.four yards per carry, which was the second-highest mark of his career. Freeman averaged a career-low three.6 yards per carry in Atlanta.
Rashaad Penny is more likely to begin the season on the bodily unable to carry out record, so the Seahawks are on the lookout for a veteran who can present depth in the meantime. They in all probability aren’t prepared to spend much to fill that need, although they may have to outbid at least one other team if they need to signal Hyde.
