Bryce Brown was waived by the Seahawks on Saturday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.
Brown was waived in order to make room for Jeremy Lane, who was activated from the reserve PUP list Saturday. Brown was expected to add depth at the running back position after Marshawn Lynch underwent hernia surgery during the week, but it appears as if the Seahawks are comfortable relying on Thomas Rawls and Fred Jackson for the bulk of the work out of the backfield.
Bryce Brown re-signed with the Seattle 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.
Bryce 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.
Bryce Brown was waived by the Seattle 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.
Bryce Brown agreed to a contract with the Seattle 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.
