Despite giving high praise to the team’s running backs just five days ago, Seattle head coach Pete Carroll is still not completely happy with what he has in the cupboard.
According to sources cited by the NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora, the Seahawks are “very interested” in disgruntled running back Marshawn Lynch.
Lynch, previously the starter in Buffalo, has fallen to third on the Bills’ depth chart behind Fred Jackson and recently-drafted C.J. Spiller. The player Buffalo fans formerly fawned over has been a no-show at Bills offseason workouts and wants out of the town that drafted him.
Citing the NFL Network, WIVB-TV in Buffalo reported that Seattle offered a fourth-round selection in April’s National Football League Draft for Lynch, but the Bills rejected the proposed deal because it wasn’t what Buffalo was willing to receive in return for the two-time 1000-yard rusher.
The Buffalo-based television station went on to report that Lynch is contractually obligated to attend the Bills’ mandatory workouts next week.
