For most of the week, the Seahawks have been working with three open roster spots. Ahead of practice on Friday, two of those three spots were filled.
Seattle re-signed two members from their 2020 UDFA class, the team announced Friday. Running back Patrick Carr and wide receiver Seth Dawkins returned to the Seahawks after being waived in late July. The pair were a part of Seattle’s cuts to get from 90 roster spots to 80 before training camp.
Carr, a University of Houston product, enters the NFL relatively fresh, having totaled just 237 touches across three seasons.
Finishing up some work on the Seahawks' UDFA class, and RB Patrick Carr is among the guys I'm most excited about.— Alistair Corp (@byalistaircorp) May 6, 2020
- Super compact 5'9 and 205 pounds
- Averaged 5.7 YPC over his final two seasons
- Fresh: 79 touches per season on average at Houston
- A lot to like about him! pic.twitter.com/tWVnHapW2b
The 5’9” 205-pound runner returns to the Seahawks just days after his fellow UDFA RB Anthony Jones was waived. The team needed to add a running back with Chris Carson away from the team due to a personal matter and Rashaad Penny unable to participate.
In four seasons at the University of Louisville, Dawkins posted 94 catches, 1,510 yards, and nine touchdowns, with his best season coming in 2017—catching passes from Lamar Jackson. Dawkins rejoins a crowded wide receiver corps, which includes another UDFA in Aaron Fuller.
Even after Friday’s signings, Seattle has one open roster spot left.
