The Seahawks have reached a deal to keep running back Chris Carson in Seattle. 

The two year deal is worth $14.25M, according to the NFL. Talks of a deal surfaced on March 19th of a two-year deal worth $24.6M, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

"Chris is a huge priority, and we'd love to have him back," said head coach Pete Carroll said in a Seahawks statement on Saturday. "Chris has got to look out for himself, so he's got to see what the situation is, but we would love for him to be back with us. He's been a terrific part of our team, and hopefully we can keep that going."

Carson has rushed for 3,270 yards in four seasons.
