Seahawks Work Out Robert Turbin, Alfred Blue

Rashaad Penny‘s IR placement has made Chris Carson the sole focal point of the Seattle backfield, but the 11-3 team is looking at potential supplementary options.

The Seahawks brought in former backfield cog Robert Turbin and ex-Texan Alfred Blue for workouts, Field Yates of tweets. Carson logged 24 carries Sunday against the Panthers, with backups C.J. Prosise and Travis Homer combining for seven. Penny had earned a bigger role in the backfield as the season progressed, due partially to Carson’s fumbling issues.

Now 30, Turbin has not played in a game in over a year. He was last with the Seahawks during the 2014 season, serving as one of Marshawn Lynch‘s backups. Bobby Turbo was a Colt from 2016-18, his best Indianapolis work coming in a seven-touchdown 2016 season. He did not score more than one TD in each of his other six NFL seasons. He met with the Raiders in April.

Blue, 28, has only played for the Texans. He also has not suited up in a 2019 game. Last season, the longtime backup/occasional starter averaged 3.3 yards per carry.
