The Seahawks have hired former NFL running back and scout Alonzo Highsmith in a full-time role following his addition as a consultant earlier in the offseason.
Most recently, Highsmith served as vice president of personnel for the Cleveland Browns from 2018-19. Prior to joining the Browns, Highsmith spent 19 seasons with the Green Bay Packers player personnel department. During his time in Green Bay, the Packers earned 13 trips to the playoffs, nine NFC North division titles and a victory in Super Bowl XLV.
In Green Bay, Highsmith worked with General Manager John Schneider, who was a part of the Packers' front office from 2002-2009 before joining the Seahawks the following year.
During his NFL playing career, he appeared in 65 regular season games and rushed for 1,195 yards on 283 carries with seven touchdowns, spending time with the Houston Oilers, Dallas Cowboys, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Highsmith attended the University of Miami where he helped the Hurricanes capture the 1983 national championship.
