The possibility of Marshawn Lynch coming to Seattle

After releasing running back LenDale White, the Seattle Seahawks could be looking to bolster their running back group.

Allen Wilson of the Buffalo News reports the Seahawks explored a trade for Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch before the NFL Draft in April, but the price was too steep for Seattle.

lynchNow it appears that Lynch is not at Bills workouts, meaning there is friction between him and the team.

Reports say Lynch remains in good shape despite missing voluntary workouts with the team this offseason.

Lynch is a power running back and would replace White’s expected production well if the Seahawks chose to pursue that option. One hinderance is that Seattle is already without a third-round pick in the 2011 draft after trading the pick as part of an earlier deal for quarterback Charlie Whitehurst.

Lynch is 24 and has played three seasons with Buffalo since he was drafted with the 12th overall pick in 2007.

His production dipped in 2009 after two straight seasons of 1,000-plus yards and a yards per carry average over 4.0.

Last season he served a three-game suspension after a guilty plea to a misdemeanor gun possession charge. When he returned to the field, he lost carries to Fred Jackson and his production suffered. Lynch rushed 120 times for 450 yards and two touchdowns. He also caught 28 passes for 179 yards.

Current Seahawks running back Justin Forsett could be a potential draw to Seattle for Lynch as the two roomed together when they both played at California.
