In an apparent attempt to help facilitate a trade, ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch will report to voluntary workouts and practice today.
Lynch has been lifting weights at the team’s practice facility for the past week, but refused to take the field.
Lynch has asked for a trade because he is third on the depth chart behind veteran Fred Jackson and rookie C.J. Spiller. Seattle reportedly showed interested in Lynch before the draft in April, but the Bills’ asking price for third round draft pick as compensation, and the Seahawks only wanted to give up a fourth round pick.
The Bills have said they are not interested in trading the Cal product.
But now with a disgruntled Lynch not cooperating with the team’s workout program, perhaps the Bills are willing to take a lesser draft pick. And with LenDale White now gone, Seattle could use a powerful, short yardage running back like Lynch to add to the team’s running back rotation.
Allen Wilson of the Buffalo News reports that Lynch has not talked with general manager Buddy Nix or head coach Chan Gailey since returning to Buffalo.
ESPN’s Mike Sando says Lynch makes sense if the price is right.
