The Seahawks remain interested in free agent running back Alex Collins, Brady Henderson of ESPN reports.

Collins worked out for the team Dec. 30. He also worked out for the Packers and Bills late last season and the Dolphins on Jan. 28.

He did not play in 2019 and thus can sign at any time with any team.

The Seahawks made Collins a fifth-round pick in 2016. Seattle cut him before the start of the 2017 season.

Collins led the Ravens with 973 rushing yards during the 2017 season and started the first 10 games of the next season before landing on injured reserve.

He was arrested on marijuana possession charges last March after a car crash and was dropped by Baltimore hours later.

While unsigned, Collins served a three-game suspension related to his arrest.

  1. “Collins led the Ravens with 973 rushing yards during the 2017 season”. They should sign him, and give him a chance to succeed with the team. 🏈

  2. Hahaha- guy is totally useless so that makes him a front runner for RB1 in Rain City- or re sign old man Lynch

    Penny and Carson can’t stay on the field

  3. How does one serve a 3 game suspension when not employed by anyone? Does that mean he was guaranteed $ for games after being cut, that he was docked $ and wasn’t paid that amount? He should have to miss the first regular season (3) games, while being paid, by his next team.

  4. This demonstrates how the Carroll-Schneider directorate mismanages talent, and does not work through their special training / conditioning / medical needs [Collins needed a special visor to prevent migrane headaches]. Spencer Ware, Max Unger, and others were similar casualities.

    the Carroll-Schneider directorate is not going to build a deep and solid offensive line to enable talent like Collins, or even LeVeon Bell, and instead prefers to invest in the next Earl Campbell. Their motto is “RUN FIRST,” (then block second).

    Sometimes, when people learn a new word, they like it so much they use it over and over. Or, maybe that just their directorate to do so. Call it what you want, the Carroll-Schneider “directorate” has been one of the most successful this past decade. But there will always some part time couch directorator schmo that thinks they’re smarter.
    Maybe a change in directoration will improve recent success, but they way they’ve been directorated so far is far better that the directoratativity of other directorataticians in the NFL.
