Marshawn Lynch: My agent has been in touch with Seahawks about a return

Long-time veteran Marshawn Lynch is eyeing another season of football. We break down the latest news.

The Seattle Seahawks have solid depth at the running back position, but as we saw late last season, you can never have too many running backs. Chris Carson and Rashaad Penny both suffered season-ending injuries and it resulted in Marshawn Lynch making a brief return to the Pacific Northwest. The Seahawks signed Lynch for Week 17 and he appeared in that game and two playoff games to close out the season.

Now, Lynch is eyeing a return engagement. He told Scott Van Pelt late Monday evening his agent has been in touch with the Seahawks to discuss the 2020 season. Lynch didn’t seem super concerned about how it works out, saying, “If it works out and I get back up there, it is what it is. And if not, shit, I’m lookin’ good. So I ain’t really trippin’ too much.”

In Lynch’s brief three-game run with the Seahawks, he scored four touchdowns. He had the most carries in two of the games, while Travis Homer served as a complement and occasional lead.

The Seahawks current backfield is led by Carson and Penny, and followed by Homer, fourth round pick DeeJay Dallas, and undrafted free agents Patrick Carr and Anthony Jones.
