Marshawn Lynch could return to Seahawks in wake of RB injuries

Marshawn Lynch

The Seattle Seahawks are in desperate need of running back help as they head toward the postseason, and they could bring back a very familiar face to help address that issue.

Marshawn Lynch is reportedly traveling to Seattle on Monday to discuss the possibility of rejoining to his former team, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports.

The Seahawks have had their entire running back depth chart wiped out in recent weeks. It began when Rashaad Penny suffered a torn ACL earlier this month, and then both Chris Carson and CJ Prosise suffered season-ending injuries in Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals. Seattle head coach Pete Carroll said Carson is expected to miss the rest of the year with his hip injury and Prosise will not return after hurting his arm.

Lynch is one of the most popular players in Seahawks franchise history, so fans would likely be thrilled if he signed with the team again. He is 33 and has not played much over the past two years, as he appeared in just six games with the Oakland Raiders last season. However, Lynch is certainly familiar with Seattle’s offense and should have something to offer if he’s healthy.

There were reports prior to the season that Lynch could still play for another team, but he never ended up signing.
