The Seattle Seahawks may be looking to bring in another former Houston Texans running back.

On Monday, Seattle hosted former Texans and Titans running back D’Onta Foreman for a tryout. The 25 year-old has played in three seasons in his NFL career, racking up 421 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns. He was selected by Houston with the 89th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

At 6’1,” 236 pounds, Foreman certainly fits the mold of the type of back Pete Carroll likes to have on the roster. He is known to be a bit of a bruiser, who has a lot of power and typically rushes using only one cut.

The Seahawks currently have six running backs on the roster, but the departure of Carlos Hyde means that at least one spot has been opened for competition. With the draft right around the corner, a signing in the next few days seems unlikely, but the Seahawks may decide to look Foreman’s way for depth later this offseason.
