Expect the Hawks to Sign FA Running Backs

by: Michael Steffes

For those who expected the Hawks to address RB in the draft, as many did, fear not. The Hawks will almost certainly be signing one or two in their take of undrafted free agents.

Right now, they simply do not have enough on the roster for camp. Jeremiah Johnson has to be a strong consideration, and possibly Kory Sheets as well.

The Hawks should be fairly attractive for RB free agents because they have no real established starter and potentially have an open spot on the final roster for another back.

We should see the list of undrafted free agents the Hawks sign by about 6 o'clock. Last year's crop brought us David Hawthorne and Jamar Adams, and the Hawks have traditionally found good players after the draft.

Linebacker, safety, and running back appear to be the positions that will be interested in signing up with the Seahawks. Those will be fairly easy positions to make the roster with a good camp performance.
