Seahawks, Lynch open to reunion

Seahawks, Lynch open to reunion

Seattle also lost backup C.J. Prosise for the season with a broken arm.

But Calkins pointed out that Lynch dropped by the Seahawks' practice facility earlier this month. BetOnline's oddsmakers don't see it happening. Ironically, he was playing against the Seahawks. Green Bay still has to win a game to clinch the NFC North and with the New Orleans Saints right on their tail, they'll likely need to win out if they hope to hang on to that No. 2 playoff seed.

Second-year running back Rashaad Penny had already been lost for the year with a torn ACL.

With the Seahawks' backfield obliterated by injuries over the last three weeks, the Seahawks have turned to the backfield responsible for carrying them to back-to-back Super Bowls to save their 2019 season.

Lynch averaged 4.2 yards per carry and 62.7 yards per game before getting injured last season. Their next running back on the depth chart, rookie Travis Homer, has eight career carries.

The Seahawks on Monday brought in a number of running backs, including Marshawn Lynch. Both played for the team in the past. In total, Lynch ran for 376 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns in six games. The Seahawks would take that kind of production to help make up for the loss of Carson, who finished the year with a career-high 1,230 yards and 4.4 yards per attempt.

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch (24) offers Champagne to running back Robert Turbin (22) during a celebration Wednesday, Feb. 5, 2014, at CenturyLink Field in Seattle. Lynch is 33 years old.

Also Monday, Carroll said he expects Jadeveon Clowney to play against the 49ers after missing the Cardinals game with a core-muscle injury he's been dealing with since Week 10.

Lynch's contract is for this season only - Week 17 against the San Francisco 49ers and the postseason, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Lynch announced his first retirement on Twitter memorably the night of SB 50 back in 2016. However, the Seahawks current regime is mostly the same, so there wouldn't be a huge learning curve. You can see why Marshawn Lynch makes flawless sense.
