OUT: Marshawn Lynch, Thomas Rawls
IN: Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny, Mike Davis
The Panthers experienced to struggle “Beast Mode” from 2012-15, and they did a commendable task made up of the present-day Oakland Raider. Rawls, who is now a free agent, ran for 106 yards and two touchdowns versus the Panthers in 2016.
Carson, Davis and the first-spherical decide Penny merge to kind Seattle’s present-day three-headed assault in the backfield. Soon after position 23rd in dashing a year back, the Seahawks are back at the major of the league in dashing, averaging 154.3 yards for every video game.
“We went by way of a pair of many years with men banged up like crazy, and we weren’t able to uncover any continuity,” said Carroll, who like Rivera has generally prioritized a steady ground video game. “That’s the first thing that has aided us. Offensive line participate in has actually taken a jump far too, and we have develop into a minor a lot more various in how we’re doing issues.”
OUT: Jermaine Kearse, Luke Willson
IN: David Moore, Nick Vannett
Kearse was a reliable target who now plays for the Jets. Willson, now a Lion, was a thorn in Carolina’s side with a pair landing grabs.
Moore is another example of Seattle unearthing a late-spherical gem. The former seventh-spherical decide has 310 yards and four touchdowns on the calendar year. Vannett is the major restricted conclusion soon after getting drafted in the third spherical in 2016. Previous Panther Ed Dickson is driving him on the Seattle depth chart but scored the video game-successful landing in final week’s Thursday Night time Football victory in excess of the Packers.
OUT: Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril, Bruce Irvin
IN: Frank Clark, Dion Jordan, Barkevious Mingo
Bennett (traded to Philly), Avril (retired) and Irvin (signed by Raiders and then Falcons) wreaked a great deal of havoc alongside one another.
But Seattle has remade its entrance. Clark is a disruptive defensive conclusion the Panthers have seen just before, and he currently experienced 10 sacks on the calendar year. Jordan and Mingo are former first-spherical picks of the Dolphins and Browns respectively, and they’ve settled in with the Seahawks.
