The Seattle Seahawks are set to take on the Atlanta Falcons in Week 8 on Sunday, with many observers believing that the game could be the final stand for Atlanta head coach Dan Quinn. However, in addition to the possibility that it could the final game for the former Seahawks defensive coordinator, reports have emerged Sunday morning that Seattle could move its 2018 first round pick, running back Rashaad Penny.

Pertinent to the potential that the Seahawks could work a trade for one of the running backs on the roster, this is what is currently being reported by Mike Garafolo via Ian Rapoport regarding the second year back.

The Seahawks have received calls from RB-needy teams and a potential deal for former first-round RB Rashaad Penny is possible, per colleague Mike Garafolo. With Chris Carson not relinquishing the top job, Penny may have the most value as a trade name. But obviously, they won’t give Penny away for...a penny on the dollar.

In short, Chris Carson is the unquestioned starter, and with the team apparently content with the way C.J. Prosise is performing as a backup running back, it’s possible the team could move Penny before the trade deadline arrives at 4 PM eastern time on Tuesday.
