Friday Round-Up: Chris Carson Named Seattle's Offseason Standout To Know

Chris Carson was named the Seahawks' offseason standout by ESPN.


Good afternoon, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Friday, June 15 — about your Seattle Seahawks:

​Carson Named Offseason Standout

With the conclusion of organized team activities and minicamps, ESPN NFL Nation reporters across the globe picked a player on the teams they cover that flew under-the-radar and stood out at workouts this offseason. These are players you should probably remember when training camp rolls around.

For the Seahawks, ESPN's Brady Henderson highlighted second-year running back Chris Carson:

Even though Carson began last season as the starter, he should qualify as under the radar because of what has happened since then -- a leg/ankle injury that ended his rookie season a month in, and the Seahawks spending their first-round pick on another running back, Rashaad Penny. Carson has been the most impressive of any running back this summer, and general manager John Schneider has said that at times, Carson looks like the best player on the field. After adding 10 pounds of muscle, Carson was the first name that coach Pete Carroll mentioned when asked which player impressed him the most in terms of the shape he was in when he reported back for offseason work. It'll make for an interesting battle for the starting job.
