“It is a big deal,” Carroll said Wednesday following the first practice of training camp. “He’s always been one of my favorites from the start . . . His attitude he brings, his style that he runs with is exactly what we like. I thought it was a real emotional deal when we got him back, because he didn’t know what was going to happen, but he wanted to be here; we wanted to him to be here, but we had to figure it out and it worked out.”
Carson signed a multi-year extension in March that will keep him in Seattle for the foreseeable future. There is a reason Carroll wanted to keep the veteran back in the Emerald City.
“He brings such style to us, it’s just important to have,” Carroll explained. “You go back, we really found ourselves moving in the right direction when Marshawn (Lynch) came in here. The style he brought, which is unique to him, it stood out and was obvious, we needed that.
“That’s part of what Chris brings.”
