Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said newly signed RB Fred Jackson should fit right in with their offensive approach.

“It’s good to get him in here, he’s a classy guy,” Carroll said of Jackson, via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. “You guys just met him so you probably know, tough competitor. He fits right in in all those ways and I think he’s going to give us some real secure play. Right now, coming out of the back field and doing some things for us that we need some help on, so I think he hits at a good time for us.”

Carroll added that Jackson will “play a lot” for them this weekend.

“He’ll play a lot,” Carroll said. “He ran the whole offense today. I don’t know how he got it all done, but he got it done today so I would think he’ll be ready to go.”

Carroll also confirmed that they could use him in third-down situations.

“We’ll find out. We’ll find out how it goes, we’ll check him out at practice this week and see what happens, but that’s the thought for us, that he could be a really effective third down guy,” Carroll said. “Caught 67 passes last year so he’s well equipped there.”
