Another Seattle running back.

When the Dallas Cowboys cut Christine Michael yesterday, they left themselves dangerously thin at running back. They plan to address that today by signing former Seattle and Cleveland running back Robert Turbin.

After Darren McFadden, the Cowboys only had Rod Smith, another Seattle castoff, and Trey Williams, a guy they picked up from Washington's practice squad a few weeks ago. Turbin was drafted out of Utah State by the Seahawks in 2012 and has spent much of his career backing up Marshawn Lynch. He played three games for the Browns this season carrying the ball 18 times for 60 yards.

During his career in Seattle he had 231 carries for 928 yards while also catching 43 passes. He was injured this offseason and the Seahawks eventually let him go. His tenure with the Browns was short-lived and he was released last week.
