Buffalo Bills Trade Marshawn Lynch to Seahawks

The Buffalo Bills have traded running back Marshawn Lynch to the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for a couple of undisclosed draft picks.

Obviously, this trade will open up a spot for talented rookie CJ Spiller (or Fred Jackson) in the Buffalo backfield. Looks like this could be a great trade for both teams. Only time will tell, right?

What are your thoughts? Who gets the better of this deal…Seattle or Buffalo?

From ESPN:

Lynch instantly becomes the most physically gifted runner on the team. He is 24 years old and was a Pro Bowl choice two seasons ago. Expect Lynch to share time with his former college roommate, Justin Forsett, and veteran Leon Washington. Julius Jones, already the odd man out of the rotation, presumably has no place on the roster.

Lynch’s carries and rushing yardage declined every season in Buffalo and his departure from the team appeared more likely once the Bills used a high choice for Spiller.

Lynch does come with baggage. He ran afoul of the law multiple times while with the Bills. One NFL personnel evaluator told me years ago he thought bringing Lynch back to the West Coast could carry risk if it meant reuniting the running back with negative influences from his youth.

A fresh start could also serve Lynch well and he’ll get that in Seattle.
