Brown re-signed with the Seahawks on Wednesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Brown was waived by Seattle last weekend, but the team decided to bring him back just a couple days later, presumably to provide insurance in case Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) is unable to play again this week. Brown is not a lock to suit in Week 12, but he figures to work as the Seahawks' third running back if he does.
Brown is set to re-sign with the Seahawks, according to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports. The signing isn't official, but it does makes sense that the Seahawks would turn back to Brown, as Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) may require season-ending surgery. Of course, with Thomas Rawls and Fred Jackson still around, Brown is still another injury or two away from actually having a role in the Seattle offense. He had a couple big games for the Eagles back in 2012, but his running ability is overhyped and he has never impressed with his vision or decision-making.
Brown was waived by the Seahawks on Saturday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports. This move seems to signal that Marshawn Lynch could be active for Sunday's game against the 49ers, as the Seahawks surely wouldn't compromise their depth at the running back position had they assumed Lynch would be unavailable. Brown will now have the opportunity to catch on with another team, but he's unlikely to stumble into fantasy relevance this season unless he joins a team in serious need of a running back.
Brown agreed to a contract with the Seahawks on Tuesday. Brown has been out of work since being released by the Bills in September, but the Seahawks decided to add him to the roster to improve their running back depth. Brown slots in fourth on the depth chart, so even if the injured Thomas Rawls (calf) is unable to play Sunday, Brown would still be looking at a minimal role behind Marshawn Lynch and Fred Jackson.
The Bills have released veteran running back Bryce Brown, who combined for 302 yards rushing and receiving last year but did not play in the 2015 season opener. Brown has rushed for progressively fewer yards in each season of his NFL career. He topped out at 564 yards with Philadelphia in 2011, when he averaged a fine 4.9 yards per carry.
