Former USC and Pete Carroll player awarded to Seahawks off waivers.

The Seahawks have claimed former USC Trojan running back Allen Bradford off of waivers from Tampa Bay, who released him yesterday. Bradford was a sixth round pick by the Bucs this year, but struggled in the preseason, averaging only 2.0 yards per game.

It's unclear what the Seahawks have planned for the rookie, but he'll more than likely make his mark on special teams. Per Field Gulls staff writer and USC beat reporter Scott Enyeart, Bradford came into USC as a linebacker after being recruited there as one of the top high-school defenders in the nation, and he actually once broke current USC QB Matt Barkley's collarbone in a high-school game. 

Bradford has the frame, toughness and speed to be effective in special teams and the Seahawks are known to value players that can contribute in that area. Past that, it will be interesting to see if he can earn himself some playing time in the Seahawks' crowded backfield that already features Marshawn Lynch, Leon Washington, Justin Forsett, and Michael Robinson
