The Seattle Seahawks have had an up-and-down off-season, to say the very least.
The Seahawks did manage to bring in star tight end Jimmy Graham however from the New Orleans Saints, while the offense got another boost in the form of backup running back Fred Jackson, who's main job will be to keep Marshawn Lynch happy in the locker room.
But the move to bring in the former Bills man Jackson has created an excess in Seattle's running back corps, and now Pete Carroll is trying to do something about it.

According to a report from Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Lynch's former backup Robert Turbin will be waived/injured by Seattle as he is expected to miss around five weeks due to the ankle injury.
That won't be the end of the cull however, with Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reporting that the Seahawks have now placed third string running back Christine Michael on the trade block in the hope of finding a buyer for the speedy back.
Michael has failed to earn substantial playing time with Seattle despite being a second round pick in 2013 and with undrafted free agents Thomas Rawls and Rod Smith both looking strong in pre-season, the Seahawks seem happy with their younger guys.
