Marshawn Lynch is headed back to Seattle for a visit with old friends.
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Mike Garafolo and Tom Pelissero, the former star Seahawks running back is taking a trip back to his old Pacific Northwest stomping grounds for a meeting with the franchise that once employed him through two runs to the Super Bowl.
The reason: The Seahawks need a power back.
Seattle’s Chris Carson quietly rolled up 1,230 yards rushing this season and served as the constant ground force the Seahawks have lacked since the departure of you guessed it, Lynch.
Carson’s contributions helped the Seahawks return to the class of the NFC, going 11-4 with a pivotal game coming in Week 17 against the San Francisco 49ers.
