Seahawks bring in Alex Collins for a workout

How hilarious would it be if the Seattle Seahawks ended the season by replacing their top three current running backs with three that played for them in years past.

At this point, not only would it be good for years of chuckles, but it’s not the most unlikely scenario, either.

Ian Rapoport claims that Seattle brought in Alex Collins for a workout.

Collins was drafted by the Seahawks in the fifth round of the 2016 draft. He played in Seattle for one season before being released just as his second year began. The Baltimore Ravens picked him up, where Collins made his way to lead back, putting up a few 100-yard games and multi-touchdown efforts along the way.

Collins was placed on Injured Reserve on December 1st of 2018, and has been in legal trouble twice since then.

This move is unlikely as it’s highly unnecessary. Wide receiver has taken over as primary area of concern. The Seahawks could easily move forward with Travis Homer, Lynch, and Robert Turbin.

On the other side, Roc Thomas has fewer career yards than Travis Homer did in one game, so there’s that.

But hey, it’s the playoffs, and if Marshawn Lynch can score, and Robert Turbin can get an altogether undeserved amount of praise from Russell Wilson, why can’t Seattle sign a third ghost from Christmas past?

This team has absolutely not thrown in the towel on competing as they head into the playoff season.
