Seahawks still see Chris Carson as lead running back
Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports that the Seattle Seahawks "intend" for running back Chris Carson to remain one of the team's primary offensive weapons in 2020.
He goes on to note that the team was looking for depth behind Carson when they signed Carlos Hyde and while they were considering signing free agent Devonta Freeman. Carson has been a top workhorse in the league when healthy, but health has been a concern in Seattle's running back group over the past several years.
Carson broke a whopping 34 tackles in 2019 on his way to accumulating over 1,400 yards from scrimmage. Hyde's signing would imply the team is more worried about Rashaad Penny's availability than they are about Carson's play, so Carson's workload in 2020 should be relatively secure. numberFire projects the workhorse for 255 carries, 1,128 rushing yards and just over 7 touchdowns this season.
