State Of The Seahawks Running Game?

Published on May 29, 2010 by     

The Seattle Seahawks gave up very little to acquire LenDale White.

They ended up getting nothing from him.

Waiving White cost very little. The question is how costly his departure might be because the Seahawks were counting on him to provide competition in a backfield that was seen as needing an upgrade entering the draft. And Seattle did improve that unit on the third day of the draft with a pair of trades, first for White and then for Leon Washington.

Well, now Seattle is back to having Julius Jones and Justin Forsett in the backfield and hoping Washington will be able to bounce back from a seriously fractured leg.

Seattle also has Quinton Ganther and Louis Rankin on the roster. Is that enough in the backfield? That question has spawned a resurrection of the possibility Seattle might be interested in trading for Buffalo’s Marshan Lynch. That connection was first reported by Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports before the draft.

Buffalo’s asking price was reportedly steep: a second-rounder. Now things have changed. The Bills did draft C.J. Spiller of Clemson in the first round, but Seattle did in fact inquire about Lynch after that, and he was one of the avenues the Seahawks looked into before pulling the trigger on the deals for White and Washington.

Would making that move make sense now? Allen Wilson of The Buffalo News explored that issue in the wake of White’s release.

As always, it depends upon the asking price, but remember Seattle has already leveraged part of next year’s draft, trading its third-round pick as part of the package to acquire Charlie Whitehurst.

Can Seattle really afford to give up another pick in the first four rounds to acquire Lynch? It’s certainly a question.
