Seahawks RB Travis Homer among Secret Superstars for preseason Week 2 – Seahawks Wire

The Seahawks have played some ugly football during their first two preseason games of the year. Their backup receivers can’t catch, their defenders can’t tackle and nobody on special teams seems to have any clue what they’re doing.
One bright exception to the rule has been the play of the running backs, one of the strongest position groups on the team. Even with Rashaad Penny missing in action and Ken Walker getting injured, Seattle has gotten quality contributions from this group. That includes the efforts of Travis Homer, who’s been named to Touchdown Wire’s list of the Secret Superstars of Week 2 of the preseason.
“Selected in the sixth round of the 2019 draft out of Miami, Homer has made the most of his relatively limited opportunities, averaging 5.9 yards per carry on 64 rushes, and proving to be an above-average receiver out of the backfield… In two preseason games, Homer has amassed 85 yards on nine carries, four of those runs have been explosive plays (10 or more yards), and 49 of those yards have come after contact.”
Homer has done good work as a third-down back and was the Seahawks’ most-splashy special teams player last season. His spot on the initial 53-man roster should be a sure thing. NFL teams have until Tuesday, Aug. 30 to make their final cuts.
