Seahawks Hosting RBs Marshawn Lynch For Visit

Update: Adam Schefter reports both the Seahawks and RB Marshawn Lynch are “optimistic” the veteran will re-sign with the team following his physical Monday. 

“He’ll be flying in there this morning, and we’re going to give him a really good chance to come back and play for us,” Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said via John Boyle

According to Ian Rapoport, the Seahawks and RB Marshawn Lynch will be discussing a potential reunion on Monday after Lynch travels to Seattle. 

Seattle lost both RBs Chris Carson and C.J. Prosise during Sunday’s game, so the team is in desperate straits at the position heading into the playoffs.

Lynch considered retiring for the second time in his career this offseason, but also made it known he would be willing to return to the Raiders when they lost RB Isaiah Crowell to an injury during the summer. He has maintained a good relationship with the Seattle organization and would be a strong fit despite not having played since last October. 

Lynch, 33, is a former first-round pick of the Bills back in 2007. He played three seasons in Buffalo before he was traded to the Seahawks.

Lynch decided to retire after six years with the Seahawks, but later came out of retirement and was traded to the Raiders. Lynch played two seasons for Oakland. 

In 2018, Lynch appeared in six games for the Raiders and rushed for 376 yards on 90 carries (4.2 YPC) to go along with 15 receptions for 84 yards receiving and three total touchdowns.

We’ll have more on Lynch and the Seahawks as the news is available.
