The Seattle Seahawks signed former Notre Dame running back C.J. Prosise on Friday to a four-year contract worth $3.427 million, according to NFL writer Aaron Wilson.

The third-round selection in last week’s NFL Draft will receive a $692,464 signing bonus, per Wilson.

In his first season playing the running back position — after coming to ND as a safety then converting to wide receiver — the 6-foot-1, 220-pound Prosise logged the 18th 1,000-yard rushing season in school history, with 1,032 on 156 carries (6.6 average) with 11 touchdowns.

He was ND's fifth-leading receiver in 2015, with 26 catches for 308 yards and a score.
