In four seasons with the Seahawks, Homer had 453 rushing yards and a touchdown.
He was a sixth-round pick of the Seahawks out of Miami in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Herbert rushed for 731 yards and four touchdowns last season. Herbert, Homer and Trestan Ebner are the three running backs right now for the Bears as the team might pick up a depth piece at the position in the upcoming NFL Draft.
