Marshawn Lynch working on reinstatement, trade to a contender now "expected"


After meeting with the Oakland Raiders earlier in the offseason, the Seattle Seahawks are now expected to trade him to the AFC contender:

Originally it was reported Lynch had begun the process, but could land elsewhere:

With the Seahawks already paying Thomas Rawls, Eddie Lacy, C.J. Prosise and Alex Collins, allowing a fifth running back to enter the mix wouldn't make sense and they would likely cut him anyways to keep room for everyone else.

In nine seasons, Lynch carried the ball more than 2,000 times for over 9,000 yards. He scored 74 touchdowns while averaging 4.3 yards per carry.
