When the Seahawks signed Eddie Lacy as a free agent this offseason, it seemed reasonable to conclude that they expected him to be the feature back. But Thomas Rawls has been running with the first team. During the first preseason game Sunday night against the Los Angeles Chargers, Rawls was the starter, and Lacy came in with the second unit.
The story said Lacy has passed all of his weight checks but hasn't looked impressive in camp, which could just be because of his running style. The piece also added Carson was perhaps the most impressive back in the preseason opener, even more than the stats indicated. The point of it all was the roles aren't quite defined yet for the Seattle backfield, but it seems to be a crowded one when Prosise is expected to get third down duty.
