Earlier this week, some sad news came in that Seattle Seahawks running back Chris Carson announced his retirement due to his neck injury. Carson was a beast for Seattle when healthy, but he won't be putting on the pads again.

Carson spent five seasons in Seattle with Russell Wilson, with the two obviously developing a close relationship. Wilson sent him an emotional message on Twitter to thank him for being such a great teammate.

Carson was an all-around good guy and a fantastic player. Countless Seahawks fans out there are going to miss watching him do his thing on Sundays.
