If you’re looking for a job at running back with the Seahawks, it apparently helps to have a stint with the Bills on your resume.

The NFL’s daily transaction wire brings word that the Seahawks have signed running back Bryce Brown to their 53-man roster. Brown has been out of work since being released by the Bills over a month ago, which was a couple of weeks after Buffalo released Fred Jackson. Jackson wound up in Seattle backing up Marshawn Lynch, who started his NFL career as a first-round pick of the Bills.

Thomas Rawls is the only member of the tailback depth chart who hasn’t spent time with the Bills. He suffered a calf contusion against the 49ers last Thursday, which may explain why the Seahawks sought to add some depth at the position.

Brown didn’t appear in any games for the Bills this season and ran 36 times for 126 yards in seven games with them last year. For his career, Brown, who spent 2012 and 2013 with the Eagles, has 226 carries for 1,004 yards and six touchdowns.

Wide receiver/quarterback B.J. Daniels was waived to make room for Brown on the roster.
