Report: Seahawks have interest in Lynch

Posted by Chris Brown on June 14, 2010 – 1:06 pm

According to NFL Network reporter Jason LaCanfora, the Seahawks are still interested in Marshawn Lynch.

UPDATE: LaCanfora reports that at least a fourth-round pick could’ve been had for Lynch’s services.

Here was LaCanfora’s initial twitter post on the subject.

JasonLaCanfora Seahawks remain quite interested in Marshawn Lynch should Bills opt to deal him. Would make sense. More upcoming on NFL.com and NFLNetwork.

Reports that there is interest on behalf of Seattle is anything but surprising. They acquired Lendale White as part of a draft day trade and then released him a month later as his level of commitment was questioned. With Leon Washington coming off a major leg injury and Julius Jones the only other proven back on the roster, you could see how they might be interested in a player of Lynch’s caliber.

Of course head coach Pete Carroll remembers how Lynch routinely carved up Pac-10 defenses and the Seahawks are reportedly employing a similar zone blocking scheme to the one used at Cal. The only question is the compensation willing to be offered, if it even gets that far.
