Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll can see what rookie running back Rashaad Penny can bring to the offense, despite the back’s disappointing rookie season that has seen him buried in the depth chart.
Penny, who the Seahawks selected in the 1st round of the 2018 NFL Draft, needs to show that he can translate his game to the NFL level, and Carroll believes that with more touches, he will be able to do just that.
“He needs to just be more involved,” Carroll said, according to Pro Football Talk. “I think he just needs to keep getting attempts and get out there and play. Just get accustomed to everything that’s going on around him. Big volume player (in college), lot of plays, lot of carries when he played.
Penny’s slow start can be somewhat attributed to a broken finger he suffered during Seattle’s first preseason game that knocked him off track a bit.
“He’s getting spot play so it’s difficult to go and just make that commitment at this time because we have other guys that have been really effective as well. We’re just bringing him along and hoping that we can acclimate him and see him at his best. He’s got a lot to offer us that we know of and so it’s just going to be a matter of time.”

Cardinals to Interview Ben McAdoo
The Arizona Cardinals have their head coach in Kliff Kingsbury, and now they are focusing on building his staff.
The Cardinals are interviewing former Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph to become their defensive coordinator, and also have plans for their offensive staff as well.
According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, McAdoo could be considered for the Cardinals’ offensive coordinator position, but could also be brought in as a “senior position on the offensive staff”.
Either way, Arizona is building their team around Kingsbury.
