Only five seasons lasted Chris Carson’s NFL career. The explosive Seattle Seahawks running back announced his retirement due to a neck injury suffered in the 2021 season.
The NFC franchise will put him with a failed physical designation. According to league rules, that will allow #32 to receive several million in injury protection benefits.
Carson came to be regarded as one of the best running backs in the entire NFL, but his productive time came to an end much earlier than budgeted.
It’s worth noting that the running back didn’t come with as much of a spotlight in the league, where he was selected as high as the seventh round of the 2017 Draft with pick 249.
In total he played 49 games, all with the Seahawks, where he accumulated 769 carries for 3,502 yards and 24 touchdowns, averaging 4.6 yards every time he touched the ovoid. Twitter
Seattle has another problem for the new campaign, where they had already lost their starting quarterback Russell Wilson. Now they will not have Chris Carson either, leaving the responsibility of the ground attack on Rashaad Penny, Deejay Dallas, and rookie Kenneth Walker III.
