Pete Carroll confirms Seahawks’ interest in Marshawn Lynch

The Seattle Seahawks have lost three key running backs to injuries this month, and they may be calling on Marshawn Lynch to help fill the void as they head into the postseason.

Not long after Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported that Lynch is flying to Seattle on Monday to discuss a return to his former team, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll confirmed that the team is interested in bringing back “Beast Mode.”

The two sides are optimistic that Lynch will sign a deal with the team, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Lynch is 33 and has played in only six games over the past two seasons, but he’s certainly familiar with the offense in Seattle. If he is healthy and has managed to stay in shape, he could give Seattle a rare opportunity to address a major need that arose at a terrible time.

Lynch had the best seasons of his career with the Seahawks before temporarily retiring following the 2015 season. Seattle then agreed to trade him to the Oakland Raiders in 2017 so he could play for his hometown team. Assuming he does sign with his former team, Lynch could be asked to carry a big workload.
