Bills may have Lynch suitor in Seattle

The situation with RB Marshawn Lynch in Buffalo has been stagnant as of late, but last week's development in the Seattle backfield could change that. The Seahawks were reportedly interested in Lynch, who has been pushed down to No. 3 on the Bills' depth chart following their first-round selection of C.J. Spiller, during draft weekend, but Buffalo's inflated asking price scared them off. They instead dealt for LenDale White and Leon Washington, but White was sent packing on May 28 supposedly due to a lack of focus and commitment. Without him, the 'Hawks are back in the market for a lead rusher, and we hear that they could come calling for Lynch once again. Although the Bills have been adamant about not shipping off Lynch — the fourth-year rusher recently said in an interview that GM Buddy Nix told him he wouldn't be traded — they might not be able to pass up an opportunity at this stage. With Spiller and Fred Jackson giving them a strong backfield and Lynch, who had not reported to OTAs as of June 2, clearly unhappy in Buffalo, the Bills might be willing to lower their demands to accommodate a deal with Seattle. While such a move would benefit all involved parties, only time will tell if it gets done.
