Five Teams Interested Former Eagles RB Chris Polk Including An NFC East Team

According to Mosher, Polk is currently weighing his options, but one of the interested teams is in the NFC East.

Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times wonders if the Seahawks could be an option for former Eagles RB Chris Polk.

On Friday, the Eagles elected to rescind the restricted free agent tender they extended to Polk a few months ago, which leaves him as an unrestricted free agent.

Condotta points out that not only are the Seahawks familiar with the former Washington Husky, but Pete Carroll actually recruited Polk while he was the head coach at USC.

In fact, Carroll got a commitment from Polk to go to USC before he changed his mind and flipped to Washington.

Condotta mentions that even though the Seahawks already have a decent group of running backs on their roster, he could still see Polk pushing Robert Turbin for a backup spot this summer.

It’s worth mentioning that Polk could be an asset on special teams, as he’s returned kicks in the past for the Eagles.

Polk, 25, signed on with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Washington back in 2012.

In 2014, Polk ran for 172 yards on 46 carries (3.7 YPC) to go along with two receptions for 16 yards and four touchdowns over the course of 14 games. Pro Football Focus has him down for playing 97 snaps last season to go along with a positive rating overall.

We’ll have more regarding where Polk could end up as the news is available.
