Seahawks Claim RB Thomas Clayton Off Waivers

The Seattle Seahawks added another player to their back field entourage on Friday by signing running back Thomas Clayton after being waived by the New England Patriots according to his agent JR Rickert. Clayton joins the likes of Marshawn Lynch and Justin Forsett, hopeful to see some time as a backup. 

Clayton, the 27-year old Kansas State product, was drafted in the sixth round in 2007 by the 49ers, where he suffered a season ending ACL injury in 2009. He played in 3 games for the Browns & Patriots in 2010, carrying the ball 7 times for a total of 17 yards (2.4 ypc).  Aside from preseason carries, those are his career numbers in the NFL so far, but  head coach Pete Carroll and the Seahawks will give Clayton the opportunity to make the squad as a replacement back and special teams player in training camp.
