Though the Seahawks are out of postseason contention, they still put together one of their best performances of the season in a 51-29 victory over the Lions in Week 17.

Running back Rashaad Penny was on of the keys to victory and now he’s been named NFC offensive player of the week for his performance.

Penny took 25 carries for 170 yards with a pair of touchdowns and caught a pair of passes for 15 yards in the victory.

Penny’s 170 yards set a new career high for the former first-round pick, who is set to become a free agent in March.

He now has 559 yards rushing and five touchdowns this season.

The Seahawks end the 2021 season on Sunday against the Cardinals.

  1. “Does it count if you have a good offensive outing against the Lions?” …No, it doesn’t (I’m a Seahawks fan). “He’s earned a big contract.” …LMAO. Maybe if Rashad Penny signs with another team, then he can have a big contract. The Seahawks need to send him packing and find someone more reliable.

  2. Really like the kid, & hope he continues to play well for years to come. However, based on his first 4 years of not playing up to the level expected and always having some type of injury, he will likely be only able to sign a short term “prove it” contract. I’m hoping the Seahawks offer him an incentive/milestone contract, but I won’t be disappointed if he gets a good contract with another team.

  3. I would probably offer a one-year contract with a promise of a bigger contract to follow if he meets certain expectations.
