The Seahawks re-signed receiver Seth Dawkins and running back Patrick Carr, a pair of undrafted rookies who were waived last month as the Seahawks began reducing their roster to 80 players. Both initially signed with Seattle in May following the draft.

Dawkins, a 6-foot-3, 218-pound receiver out of Louisville, appeared in 47 career games for the Cardinals, catching 94 passes for 1,510 yards and nine touchdowns in four seasons. Dawkins started 10 games as a sophomore, recording career highs in receptions (42), yards (642) and touchdowns (4). He had 16 catches for 348 yards and three scores last year.

Carr played 22 games for the University of Houston rushing for 1,274 yards and nine touchdowns. The 5-foot-8, 205-pound back began his college career at the University of Colorado where he rushed for 272 yards on 66 carries as a freshman before transferring to Houston.  

Carr provides depth at a position where Seattle's top two returning players are currently unavailable. Chris Carson, who has rushed for 2,381 yards over the past two seasons, is away tending to a family matter, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said earlier this week, while Rashaad Penny, Seattle's first-round pick in 2018, is currently on the physically unable to perform list due to the torn ACL he sustained in December.

The addition of Dawkins and Carr gives the Seahawks 79 players on their roster.
