Former Seahawks running back Thomas Rawls is heading east.
After three injury-plagued seasons in Seattle, Rawls has signed with the New York Jets, the team announced Friday.
Rawls, 24, is expected to bolster a Jets running back unit that lost starter Matt Forte to retirement.
The undrafted player out of Central Michigan started his college career at Michigan. He started seven games as a rookie in 2015. In 2016, he suffered broken leg. He had 58 carries in 2017.
