Seattle Seahawks To Trade 2nd Round Pick For Marshawn Lynch?

Published on April 14, 2010 by     Seahawk Fanatic

The match would seem to be a comfortable fit: Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is familiar with Lynch after facing him three times while coaching USC, and Lynch’s best friend – former Cal teammate Justin Forsett – carries a portion of the load in the Seattle backfield. In addition, the new Seattle regime apparently isn’t sold on current starter Julius Jones(notes) as the long-term answer in the backfield.

A two-time 1,000-yard rusher, Lynch has favored a trade out of Buffalo since losing his starting role to Fred Jackson last season. Lynch was suspended the first three games of the 2009 season for violating the league’s personal conduct policy, stemming from a guilty plea for a misdemeanor gun charge. After losing his starting role last season, the 2007 first-round pick has failed to show up for offseason workouts with the Bills. However, he isn’t subject to fines by the team until he misses a mandatory event, and the Bills won’t hold their mandatory offseason mini camp until June 23-25.

While the Bills have not been actively shopping Lynch around the league, two sources in contact with the Bills said Buffalo would be open to moving him if a package included a second-round pick. And though no dialogue has taken place between the Bills and potential suitors, the aforementioned sources say the Seattle Seahawks, who hold the 28th pick in the second round (60th overall), have had internal discussions about acquiring Lynch.

    I would much rather see Lynch in Seahawks blue than Julius Jones. To have to watch Julius Jones take even one more hand off as our starter is disrespectful to the Seattle Fans. Get Lynch and get rid of Jones so we can build the rest of our team around a pretty good running back. You have to be able to run the ball in the NFL if you want to win. Unfortunatly Jones proved one thing last year, he is not capable of being the feature back on ANY NFL team.
