Marshawn Lynch’s legs feel heavy, smile looks bright

Published on October 7, 2010 by     T.C.

Marshawn Lynch arrived at the airport Tuesday night, his plane touching down at about 11 p.m.

The wake-up call came early: 5 a.m.

By 10:45 a.m., he was on the practice field for a fresh start with his new team, wearing a familiar number: 24. That’s what he wore in college, at Cal.

“A long flight from New York to Seattle,” Lynch said. “But a good flight.”

Seattle acquired Lynch Tuesday in a trade with the Buffalo Bills, giving up a fourth-round pick next year and a conditional choice in 2012 for Lynch, a former first-round draft pick who surpassed 1,000 yards rushing in his first two seasons.

The Seahawks had pursued Lynch all the way back to March, but after hearing Bills general manager Buddy Nix say he wouldn’t be traded, Lynch was caught off guard by the deal.

“When it finally did happen, it was like a big surprise,” Lynch said.

He is 24, one-quarter of the way through his fourth season in the NFL and ready to get going. He got a full workload at practice Wednesday, Seattle’s final workout of the week. The Seahawks have a bye this weekend, and players will have Thursday through Sunday off.

“I felt pretty good because I was out on the football field, and that’s one of the most comfortable places I’ll be,” he said. “I feel like I left my legs on the plane so it wouldn’t be bad, maybe, these couple days off.”
