The Facts: After Carson agreed to return to the Seahawks, Russell Wilson went on social media to endorse the move. Wilson was "definitely in my ear" about re-signing, the running back said Thursday. Carson will start, but Rashaad Penny also will get playing time. The Seahawks drafted Penny in the first round in 2018, but he played only three games last season while continuing to recover from a knee injury. Carson believes he and Penny can get the job done. "I think we can be one of the top rushing duos in the league," Carson said.
Diehards Line:Carson added: "We both bring a different feel to the game, like different attributes. But we complement each other so well. I feel like his limit is ridiculous once he starts getting his feet wet in the game. I think it's going to be something special." Carson's 12 100-yard games since 2018 are fifth-most in the NFL, but after back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons, he rushed for only 681 in 12 games last season. The Seahawks were 2-2 in the four games Carson missed with a foot injury. "Man, that was my whole goal last season was to play 16 games," Carson said. "And when it didn't happen, going through that period was stressful." Neither Carson nor Penny ever has played a full, 16-game schedule. The team hopes both can make it through a full, 17-game season this season.
