Seahawks add Carlos Hyde, bolster RB depth

The Seattle Seahawks needed more depth at running back, and now they finally have it, Jelani Scott of reports.

Free-agent running back Carlos Hyde has agreed to a one-year deal with the franchise, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Friday. Rapoport added that Hyde can make up to $4 million during the course of the pact.

Seattle was notably hobbled entering the 2019 playoffs after seeing their RB group (Rashaad Penny, Chris Carson, C.J. Prosise) ravished by injury at the end of the season, which led to the return of fan favorite Marshawn Lynch. He played in Week 16 and in the team's two playoff contests.

The Seahawks also expressed interest in former Falcons running back Devonta Freeman.

Hyde, 29, experienced a career renaissance in 2019 with the Texans, setting career highs in first down runs (55), carries (245) and rush yads (1070). Hyde's new home brings him back to the NFC West where he spent the first four years of his NFL tenure after being selected 57th overall by the Niners in 2014. He played 50 games (36 starts) but dealt with nagging injuries throughout his time in San Fran.
