The Seahawks are confident their running game is going to improve soon.

And they must think they don’t need running back C.J. Spiller to achieve that goal.

According to Field Yates of ESPN, the Seahawks released the veteran running back.

Spiller played in two games for the Seahawks, but was a healthy scratch for Sunday’s tie with the Cardinals. The team elected to use C.J. Prosise as their third-down back behind Christine Michael.

And with Thomas Rawls getting closer to health, the Seahawks apparently decided they didn’t need him to provide a boost for one of the league’s worst rushing games.
