Prosise suffered a broken arm in Week 16 of last year and was placed on injured reserve by the Seahawks.

In 2019, Prosise played in nine games with the Seahawks, recording 72 rushing yards and a touchdown along with 10 receptions for 76 yards.

Magnuson, 26, originally signed on with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Michigan back in 2017. He lasted just over two years in San Francisco before he was waived and later signed by the Bills.

The Raiders later signed Magnuson off of the Bills’ practice squad, but they ended up waiving him and signing him to their practice squad. Las Vegas then signed Magnuson to a futures deal in December before cutting him loose a few weeks ago. 

In 2019, Magnuson was active for one game but did not make a start.
