Jonathan Stewart visiting the Seahawks

The Seahawks are blowing up their defense before it gets old, but they’re continuing to bring in veterans who may have something left in the tank.

According to Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network, the Seahawks are hosting running back Jonathan Stewart today.

Stewart was cut by the Panthers after a successful 10-year run, which he finished as their all-time leading rusher.

Still an effective between-the-tackles runner, he’d lend some experience to a backfield that’s been looking for stability since Marshawn Lynch left.

Stewart’s also from the area, which makes him visiting convenient for the Seahawks.

  1. Timberline High School’s finest. Lacey produced some good RBs, Mike Sellers and Jonathan Stewart.

  2. Seattle could go with a every other week back system to try and combat the MASH unit they seem to have on the roster if they add Stewart. Carson/Prosise week 2,4,6…….High Draft Pick/Stewart 1,3,5……forgive me but you’d have to replace Prosise week 2 because the day of that game, he’d wake up and feel a twinge somewhere and declare himself day-to-day.

  3. Eddy Lacy isn’t old enough for you? The Seahawks are a 4 win team next year. If they didn’t have Russell Wilson they’d be a 1 win team next year.

  4. The people running this team truly are idiots. They keep saying they need to get the running game back on track but they keep searching through the trash heap.

    Old guys and undrafted guys can’t replace Lynch. Go get a young, quality RB and things will turn around quickly.

    idiots? They reconstructed a lousy team and went to consecutive SB’s, had the top ranked defense for several years and stole Wilson in the third round.

  6. andreboy1 – you realize there is still a draft coming up, correct? Maybe let the whole off-season play out and then make judgments when the 53 man roster is set this fall.

    ……………………………………………..
    1 win without, 4 with. So a team with Old injured Matt Hasselbeck and Charlie Whithurst at QB back in 2010 mustered out 8 wins, 1 being a playoff win. But now Pete Carroll can only get a lucky 4 because he has a QB? Yep, the sky is falling over an old cap saving locker room culture changing player purge.

  8. What is the league minimum on this guy and would he sign for it? I thought the Seahawks had cap problems. At age 31 (this month) Stewart doesn’t seem like a reasonable option.

  9. They should be fine at RB. Carson and Davis both look to be capable, it will just depend on if they get the line together. The issue has never been talent(Exhibit A-Alex Collins) IF the line stays healthy, and one of the young guys/draft picks this year, plays well then they should be fine. Stewart or whoever they bring in will just be a change of pace guy for insurance and likely won’t get many snaps. Anything Procise brings will just be extra. I’m more concerned with the Tight End position than anything.
