The Seahawks have been awarded running back Mike Davis off waivers from the San Francisco 49ers, who released the two-year pro Friday. With the addition of the 5-9, 217-pounder, the Seahawks have 11 tailbacks on their roster as well as two fullbacks.
The 49ers selected Davis in the fourth round of the 2015 draft out of the University of South Carolina. During his first two seasons, he played in 14 games and made one start. He rushed for 108 yards and one touchdown and caught 10 passes for 63 yards.
Davis played in San Francisco’s first eight games last year, was inactive for the next seven, and active for the season finale, although he did not play.
Seattle’s tailbacks include Eddie Lacy, Thomas Rawls, C.J. Prosise, Alex Collins, Troymaine Pope, George Farmer, Chris Carson, J.D. McKissic, Tre Madden and Terrence Magee.
