Jamaal Charles will visit Seattle next week

The Seahawks have no immediate interest in running back Adrian Peterson. They have plenty of immediate interest in running back Jamaal Charles.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Charles will visit Seattle next week. If signed, he would join a depth chart currently led by Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise.

If not signed, the question becomes whether Peterson would be the next option. Offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell worked with Peterson in Minnesota, so the familiarity is there.

Seattle’s running game badly missed Marshawn Lynch in 2016, following his mid-Super Bowl 50 retirement. Charles, if healthy, bringĀ an element of excitement that has been missing since Lynch left.

The real question is whether Charles is healthy. He tore an ACL in 2015 and never was fully healthy in 2016, appearing in three games and carrying the ball only 12 times.

At his best, Charles can average well over five yards per carry on a consistent basis (his career average is 5.5), and he can catch plenty of passes. In 2013 alone, he had 70 receptions.

    At this stage, Charles will never be Lynch but if he is healthy and with even a little blocking he will still be a threat to take it to the house anytime he touches the ball.

    He’ll run right into those unblocked defenders real fast!

    OK, fine, now lets focus on that O-line!

    I’d take him over Peterson.

    Does anyone seriously believe the Hawks want Sherman and ap battling it out in the locker room for camera time?

    Why have one good running back when you can have four injured ones? Seattle is making all the key signings it needs for next year’s 7-9 finish!

    What NO team wants is AP’s daddy’s mouth.

    If Charles price is civil them bring him on, but lets not forget we really NEED a better OL.

    Lynch was his own offensive line, carrying tacklers with him downfield. Charles cannot do that. He is more of the Thomas Rawls type, undersized but quick.
