Bengals Sign RB Thomas Rawls, Waive/Injured RB Tra Carson


The Cincinnati Bengals announced Wednesday that they’ve signed RB Thomas Rawls to a contract and waived RB Tra Carson with an injury designation.

Should Carson clear waivers tomorrow, he would revert to the Bengals’ injured serve list.

Rawls, 25, wound up signing on with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Central Michigan back in May of last year. He played out the final year of his three-year, $1.59 million rookie contract but was not tendered a restricted offer by the Seahawks.

Rawls signed on with the Jets this past March but was among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason.

In 2017, Rawls appeared in 12 games for the Seahawks and rushed for 157 yards on 58 carries (2.7 YPC) to go along with nine receptions for 94 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
