On Thursday afternoon, the Los Angeles Rams released three-time Pro Bowl running back Todd Gurley just under an hour before he was due $10.5 million in injury guarantees.
After the Rams cut Gurley, several teams were mentioned as potential landing spots for the former NFL star. Immediately, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers popped up in the headlines as a team in need of running back help.
Not long after his release, ESPN’s Josina Anderson reported he is interested in playing for the Miami Dolphins or Atlanta Falcons. The former Georgia star would be right at home in Atlanta.
But that’s not all. NFL Network insider Steve Wyche suggested the Seattle Seahawks would be a good fit for Gurley. Seahawks insider Bob Condotta noted Gurley was the top player on Seattle’s draft board in 2015.

Seattle has two legitimate running backs on its roster in Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny. However, both suffered injuries at the end of the 2019 season.
Neither is expected to be ready for training camp, which means the Seahawks are in need of depth at the position.
Adding an injury-plagued Todd Gurley might not be the smartest move at this point, though. Could the Seahawks take a shot on Gurley?
