The Seattle Seahawks reportedly have their veteran running back.
According to Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the Seahawks have agreed to terms with Carlos Hyde on a one-year deal.

With Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny both coming off serious injuries, the Seahawks wanted a little bit more certainty in the backfield. Hyde was a 1,000-yard rusher last year with the Houston Texans, and will provide an excellent complementary option in Seattle’s backfield. They had been looking at other options as well, but negotiations with Hyde apparently proved simplest.
Hyde turns 30 in September. 2019 was his first 1,000-yard season, but he’s always been good at finding the end zone, racking up at least five rushing touchdowns in each of his last four NFL seasons.
