HC Pete Carroll said the team is still interested in free agent RB Fred Jackson, but is unsure whether they’ll sign him to a contract at this point in time.
“It was an information-gathering visit,” Carroll said, via Sheil Kapadia of ESPN. “He’s an incredible football player and person and [has] been extremely productive. We’ll see what that means. We had a good visit with him. I really, really like the kid. We all did. We’ll see what that means. I don’t know that answer right now.”
Kapadia believes that the Seahawks could also be waiting to see which other running backs are available following roster cuts. It’s worth noting that Jackson’s 2015 contract becomes guaranteed if the Seahawks sign him prior to Week 1.
