The Seattle Seahawks added help Friday
The Seattle Seahawks will have extra help on offense in the playoffs. The Seahawks have been plagued this season with their running back unit injuries. They’ve needed to bring in reinforcements all season at the position. On Friday, the Seahawks signed a running back to the 53-man roster before their Wild Card matchup against the San Francisco 49ers.
According to Aaron Wilson with KPRC, the Seahawks signed Tony Jones Jr. from the practice squad. To sign Jones, they cut defensive tackle Isaiah Mack. The team also elevated wide receiver Cade Johnson and linebacker Alexander Johnson from the practice squad for Saturday’s game.
