Seahawks Out to Regain Running Game behind Eddie Lacy & Thomas Rawls

POSTED BY: EDDIE LACY in NEWS

The retirement of Marshawn Lynch and injuries to their running backs derailed the Seattle Seahawks' running game last season. The Seahawks rushing significantly dropped to 25th last season from third in 2015, when Lynch was still on their roster.

Now, with the acquisition of Eddie Lacy to team up with Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise, head coach Pete Carroll said the Seahawks will try to revive their running game.

Last season, the Seahawks tallied 99.4 rushing yards, down from their average of 141.8 in 2015 when Rawls and Lynch ran for a total of 1,247 yards.

Aside from Lynch's retirement, the Seahawks running game was affected by injuries to Rawls and Prosise. Rawls was limited to nine games, rushing for 349 yards and three touchdowns.

Hounded by problems in the rushing corps, the Seahawks relied mainly on their passing plays, throwing for more than 60 percent of their plays in 2016. In 2015, the Seahawks had 51 percent of their plays come from passing.

"We definitely will," Carroll told Sheil Kapadia of ESPN. "We lost 100-something runs last year. And that was basically the story. That was basically the tale of why everything came about as it did."

With an in-form Lacy and healthy Rawls and Prosise in their backfield, Carroll said the Seahawks can depend on their running game, easing quarterback Russell Wilson's workload. Last season, Wilson set a career-high in passing attempts (546), completion (353) and passing yardage (4,219), per CBS Sports.

After Lynch cut short his retirement and joined the Oakland Raiders, the Seahawks signed Lacy to a one-year deal worth $5.55 million, counting $2.865 million fully guaranteed.
