Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson received interest from the Carolina Panthers, New England Patriots and New York Jets during free agency earlier this offseason before he ultimately decided to return to the Seahawks.

Free-agent RB Chris Carson (Seahawks) reportedly agreed to terms on a two-year contract worth up to $14.625 million to remain with the Seattle Seahawks on Friday, March 19. ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the deal's actual framework is a three-year pact that voids after two seasons and worth $24.625 million.
Huddle Up: Carson follows in the footsteps of Aaron Jones as top free-agent running backs in this class ultimately choosing to stay home after hitting the market. Given Seattle's recent edict that it wants to commit even more to the running game, Carson is in great shape to see all the volume he can handle over the next two years. Fantasy owners should consider him a fringe RB1 in upcoming drafts, even with his injury history and the continued threat of Rashaad Penny stealing some work.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson will not receive the franchise tag and is set to become a free agent, according to a source.
Huddle Up: As hard as it is to believe for a team that is committed to running the ball, it appears the Seahawks' cap situation is in bad enough shape that they could attempt to move forward with Rashaad Penny, DeeJay Dallas and likely a late draft pick (or an undrafted free agent). Carson is among the most physical backs in the league and should not have trouble finding a job in the first week of free agency. He should be a solid fantasy RB2 regardless of where he signs and could have RB1 upside if he finds a great landing spot.

Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent RB Chris Carson averaged a career-high 4.8 yards per carry and a career-best 3.1 receptions per game in 2020.
Huddle Up: Carson missed time with an injury, but he resumed his role as Seattle's workhorse back down the stretch while expanding his involvement in the passing game. If the Seahawks bring him back in 2021, RB2 production seems like a given.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (foot, load management) was upgraded to a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Jan. 6.
Huddle Up: Carson didn't practice Tuesday, so this is already a step in the right direction and proof the team is just being cautious. He'll be an RB1 option this week despite the difficult matchup against the Los Angeles Rams.

Seattle Seahawks RB Chris Carson (foot, load management) didn't participate in practice Tuesday, Jan. 5.
Huddle Up: Carson ran 11 times for 44 yards and added two receptions for 39 yards in Week 17. If this is truly load management, he'll be good to go as a top DFS option in the Wild Card round with the Seahawks favored over the Los Angeles Rams.
