Seahawks to add RB Kregg Lumpkin

Running back Kregg Lumpkin agreed to terms on a contract with the Seahawks Friday.

The Seahawks tried to acquire Lumpkin two years ago when he was waived by the Green Bay Packers, putting in a waiver claim on him. Instead, Lumpkin was awarded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on waivers. He played for the Bucs the previous two seasons, appearing in 29 games.

Lumpkin, 27, is 228 pounds, meaning he fits in the mold of the bigger back the Seahawks had been seeking to serve as a complement to starter Marshawn Lynch. The Seahawks were interested in Michael Bush, who wound up going to the Bears this week.
