Marshawn Lynch

SEATTLE - Could running back Marshawn Lynch make another return to Seattle? He says his agent has been in discussions with the Seahawks to rejoin the team.

“Well, it’s almost on that ‘expect the unexpected,’” Lynch told ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt in an interview Monday night, adding his agent, Doug Hendrickson, has been talking with the Seahawks.

Lynch, who unretired and rejoined the Seahawks before Week 17 of last season after season ending injuries for running backs Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny and C.J. Prosise. Lynch played in three games, including the regular season finale and two playoff games, carrying the ball 30 times for 67 yards and scoring four touchdowns.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said during the NFL combine in February that the door wasn’t closed on Lynch’s return. "We'll see," Carroll said.

Chris Carson is expected to be ready by Week 1 of the 2020 season, but Penny’s recovery from knee surgery could sideline him for the start of the season. Other running backs on the Seahawks roster including second-year player Travis Homer, rookie fourth-round pick DeeJay Dallas and undrafted rookies Anthony Jones and Patrick Carr.

I like Lynch. I think he was a pretty impressive player back in the day. However he's getting on in years and his body just can't it like back in the olden days. In the 2 games he played with Seattle last year, he was looking kind of pathetic. Take your money and buy a Skittles franchise.

Can't really disagree with you kdog however this guy refused to stand for the American flag but stood for the Mexico flag. I don't have any use for him anymore.
