Running back “by committee?” Maybe not just yet

Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell spoke to the media after today’s OTA, and you can watch some of the video below, including his answer to a question about his statement last week during the team’s Town Hall that Seattle might go with more of a by-committee approach at tailback this year.

Bevell clarified that he meant it more in relation to the team’s current workouts during OTAs, in which starting tailback Marshawn Lynch is not participating (or has not yet, anyway) than any plans for the season.

“Well you know I was referring to a question at that thing, I was thinking more out here,” Bevell said. “We are kind of rolling all those guys and we really like what we are seeing from them and just kind of moving around. It’s not our policy. It’s not something we talk about or do that way. Just something I just threw out there. Really was thinking about the OTAs.”

Bevell also talked a bit more about the tailback spot and other aspects of the offense, which you can see below:
