The Seahawks have added to running-back depth behind Marshawn Lynch by signing former Buffalo and Phildelphia backup Bryce Brown.
Seattle cleared space on its active roster for the 24-year-old Brown by releasing wide receiver B.J. Daniels for the second time this month.
Brown’s arrival after a bevy of free agents tried out at Seahawks headquarters in Renton following practice on Monday suggests rookie back Thomas Rawls’ calf injury he got in last week’s win at San Francisco may keep him out a bit.
Brown has 1,004 career yards rushing after two full seasons with the Eagles in 2012 and ‘13 behind LeSean McCoy and seven games last year with current Seahawks runner Fred Jackson in Buffalo. The Bills released the 6-foot, 220-pound Brown last month, after they traded a fourth-round draft choice to the Eagles last year to get the former seventh-round draft choice. He had only 126 yards rushing in seven games, two starts for Buffalo.
