Louis Rankin Signed from Practice Squad

The Seahawks have signed former UW standout RB Louis Rankin from their practice squad to the 53-man roster.

As Rotoworld suggests, Rankin’s promotion may indicate Justin Forsett being moved off special teams and given more carries with the offense. But it could also mean the team wants to see what Rankin can do in a similar role in which they’ve used Forsett so far. It’ll be interesting to see what happens, but either way, Greg Knapp would be well-advised to mix up the play calling a bit.
