Marshawn Lynch Hoping To Re-Sign With Seattle

Eric Williams of the Tacoma News-Tribune reports Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch is hoping to re-sign with Seattle rather than test the free agent market.

Hopefully I don’t have to” said Lynch. “Hopefully I can get taken care of where I’m at. But I mean, if that’s the case, that would be the next step.”

Lynch put together a great 2011 season for the Seahawks totaling 1,204 yards rushing to go with 13 touchdowns. There’s really no reason why the team would allow him to leave considering that they have plenty of positions to address in the draft other than running back. They always could use their franchise tag on him if they’re unable to reach an agreement but Lynch is still only 25 years old.

We have Lynch listed as the #25 best available free agent in the years Top 50 Free Agents list.
