Seattle announced the move Tuesday, also waiving receiver B.J. Daniels in a corresponding move. Brown, 24, has rushed for 1,004 yards and six touchdowns in three seasons. Brown rushed for 564 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie in Philadelphia, but had fumbling problems, losing four on 115 carries.
With Marshawn Lynch handling most of the rushing workload, Brown helps provide depth with Thomas Rawls recovering from a calf contusion from last week’s victory in San Francisco. Fred Jackson also remains on the roster.
Brown, a former seventh-round pick out of Kansas State, was released by Buffalo in September.
