The Seahawks' backfield is slowly turning into Bills West.

Pro Bowl ballot

After signing Buffalo legend Fred Jackson before the season, Seattle signed running back Bryce Brown on Tuesday.

Brown was let go by the Bills following Week 1 and had gone unclaimed until this week. Jackson has underperformed as a third-string back for the Seahawks (54 yards in seven games), while Thomas Rawls (65 carries, 366 yards) has taken meaningful carries away from the oft-injured Marshawn Lynch (82, 304).

Brown's signing could spell the end of the line for Jackson in the Emerald City, who was involved in a single-car crash last week outside the Seahawks' facility, but it is more likely an indication that Pete Carroll is stocking up on insurance for Beast Mode.
