Seahawks' offer to running back Devonta Freeman was worth up to $4M

In need of a veteran running back, the Seattle Seahawks have made a one-year offer to two-time Pro Bowler Devonta Freeman and have also been in talks with Carlos Hyde, sources confirmed to ESPN. Freeman could change his stance depending upon how many other offers he receives. The Seahawks have offered him a one-year deal worth up to $4 million, according to Silver.

The Texans acquired Hyde from the Kansas City Chiefs previous year in a trade on cutdown day in exchange for offensive lineman Martinas Rankin. The veteran running back is looking for more money, however. Even in a down season, though Freeman totaled over 1,000 all-purpose yards with 59 catches.

Besides Carson and Penny, Seattle's running back group also includes Travis Homer, who played significantly at the end of last season as a rookie, 2020 fourth-round pick DeeJay Dallas, and undrafted rookie free agents Anthony Jones and Patrick Carr.

Media reports: NCAA to allow voluntary workouts on campus starting June 1
College sports is finally starting to make its return, but don't expect Duke athletes to get on the field just yet. The NCAA iis poised to allow voluntary on-campus workouts in football, men's basketball and women's basketball.

The Seahawks lost starter Chris Carson (hip) and backups Rashaad Penny (ACL) and C.J. Prosise (broken arm) to season-ending injuries in December. The Seahawks reportedly have had conversations with Marshawn Lynch. Hyde's new home brings him back to the NFC West where he spent the first four years of his National Football League tenure after being selected 57th overall by the Niners in 2014.

However, he failed to rush for over 1,000 yards that season and his production as a receiver dropped as well.

Freeman, 27, was released by the Atlanta Falcons on March 16. Coach Pete Carroll said the procedure to fix the injury was "more than just a normal ACL" surgery.
