Chris Carson and Seahawks have not had contract...


Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson is entering the final year of his rookie contract and is hoping for a contract extension. Carson admitted that he has been anticipating it after seeing several of his fellow tailbacks attain financial security from their respective teams.

“Of course it’s something that’s on my mind,” Carson told reporters during his press conference on Tuesday. “You see a lot of guys, they’re starting to get paid, but I try not to distract me from this season. I just try to push it away, but like I said, it is something that’s on my mind but I try not to let it affect me.”

Carson stated that Seattle has not reached out to him to offer an extension or discuss his future in any way. When asked if he wants to remain in the Emerald City, Carson confessed that he has no clear idea of where he will end up next.

“I mean, if everything plays out the right ways,” he said. “I guess we’re just going to have to see.”

Considering he was a seventh-round pick in 2017, it is safe to say Carson has far exceeded expectations. He was a double-edged sword for the Seahawks in 2019, rushing for 1,230 yards and seven touchdowns and adding 266 receiving yards and two more TDs, but also fumbling seven times, losing four of them. However, Carson remains confident in his abilities and stated he has worked on his fumbling issues in preparation for the 2020 season.

“Just being a seventh-round draft pick, you’re always going to have that chip on your shoulder but at this point in the game I don’t really have nothing to prove,” Carson said. “I feel like my game has spoken for itself for the last three years or whatever. As far as the fumbling, that was something that played a big part last year, it’s something I worked on in the offseason. But like I said, you’ve got to have a quick mindset, let that go and just move on from it. Learn from it and like I said, move on from it.”

Carson could still receive an extension before the season starts, but his future is up in the air at this point.
