Marshawn Lynch traded to Seahawks
The Seahawks give up a fourth-round pick in the 2011 NFL draft and a conditional latter-round pick in 2012. There were several teams linked to wanting to acquire Lynch, among them the Packers and the Eagles. The Seahawks tried prior to April’s NFL draft to acquire the former Cal running back. Up until this point, the Bills had held firm against all suitors, but Seattle finally got them to make a move.
Lynch has 2,765 career rushing yards with 17 TDs on the ground. Lynch's numbers declined after a breakout rookie year in 2007, when he rushed for 1,115 yards.
Lynch was made expendable with the drafting of first-round pick C.J. Spiller.
This season, Lynch leads the Bills in carries with 37 for 164 yards, while Spiller and fellow running back Fred Jackson have a combined 34 carries for 136 yards.
Spiller's made his presence felt in the passing game as well, catching 12 passes for 45 yards and a touchdown to Lynch's one catch for 7 yards. The Bills rookie running back is also a threat in kick returns, having returned 17 kicks for 484 yards, including a 95-yard touchdown.
