Seattle Seahawks: Backups That Could Shine in 2015

The starters for the Seattle Seahawks aren't losing their jobs to backups anytime soon. However, depth is crucial to sustaining success. If a starter goes down, a more than capable backup is a huge asset.

When a successful quarterback is in contract extension talks, of course the media is going to pick up on the topic.

Are The Seattle Seahawks Running Away From The Future At Running Back?

The last time the Seattle Seahawks invested a high (second-round) draft pick on a running back was in 2013, when they selected Christine Michael out of Texas A&M with what was their first selection in that draft. That’s par for the course in Seattle. To uncover the last time the Seahawks invested that high of a pick on a running back, you have to go back to the 2002 draft when...
