Seahawks sign RB Bryce Brown, waive WR B.J. Daniels

The Seahawks made a roster move Tuesday to add depth to their backfield, signing former Eagles and Bills running back Bryce Brown.

The Seahawks made a roster move Tuesday, signing running back Bryce Brown and waiving receiver B.J. Daniels.

Brown, who is listed at 6-foot, 223 pounds, is in his fourth season, having rushed for 1,004 yards and 6 touchdowns on 226 carries from 2012-2014. Brown, a seventh-round pick out of Kansas State in 2012, rushed for a career-best 564 yards and 4 touchdowns as a rookie with the Philadelphia Eagles, averaging 4.9 yards per carry. Brown, 24, was traded to Buffalo in the 2014 offseason where he was teammates with current Seahawks back Fred Jackson, and was released by the Bills in September.

One reason the Seahawks could be looking for running back depth is that Thomas Rawls has a calf contusion from last week's win at San Francisco. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Monday that they were not sure yet of Rawls' status for this week.

Daniels, who made the switch from quarterback to receiver in the offseason, appeared in four games this season, catching one pass for 12 yards while also contributing on special teams.
