The Seattle Seahawks’ offseason of loss sadly continues. After parting ways with Russell Wilson and Bobby Wagner earlier in the year, Seattle is saying goodbye to running back Chris Carson.

After five productive years in the NFL, Carson is retiring due to a neck injury.

Chris Carson wasn’t just a brawler for the Seahawks, he became a revelation for the team. Following his injury after four games in 2017, the Seahawks ground attack cratered. Seattle’s once-vaunted running game quickly became among the league’s worst. The Seahawks only scored four rushing touchdowns all year, and three of them were by then-quarterback Russell Wilson.

Upon his return, Carson wasted little time establishing himself as one of the most bruising backs in the NFL. Carson revived Seattle’s anemic offense, bulldozing his way through defenses and into the collective hearts of the 12th Man.

Carson’s career may be cut short by recurring injuries, but he made the most of his time in the League. In his five years, Carson still managed to crack into Seattle’s Top 10 all time rushing leaders at No. 8. He also finished as the No. 6 all time rushing touchdown leader in franchise history as well.

Seattle’s running back stable looks to be in good shape moving forward with rookie Kenneth Walker and Rashaad Penny, who will look to build off his explosive finish in 2021. But Seahawks fans will certainly miss watching Chris Carson punishing the NFL’s best run defenders.
