Seahawks Promote RB Alex Collins To Active Roster

The Seattle Seahawks announced Friday that they’ve promoted RB Alex Collins to their active roster ahead of their playoff game against the Rams. 


It’s worth mentioning that Seahawks RB Rashaad Penny was added to the injury report with a knee injury and is questionable this weekend. 

Collins, 26, is a former fifth-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2016. He was entering the second year of his four-year, $2.566 million contract when he was cut loose by the Seahawks at the start of the 2017 season.

Collins signed on to the Ravens’ practice squad a few days later and was eventually promoted to their active roster. The Ravens brought him back on an exclusive rights contract for the 2018 season but he was released last year following an arrest and a three-game suspension by the NFL. 

The Seahawks signed Collins back in November. 

In 2020, Collins has appeared in three games for the Seahawks and rushed for 77 yards on 18 carries (4.3 YPC) to go along with one reception for four yards and two total touchdowns.
