NFL Network's Jason La Canfora said on Total Access Monday that he believes the Seahawks would give up a fourth-round pick in exchange for Marshawn Lynch.
La Canfora is speculating -- not reporting -- but acquiring Lynch would go a long way toward solving the Seahawks' power back need. It would also allow Seattle to release Julius Jones, saving the club over $1.5 million. Lynch's 2010 base salary is just $885,000. Jones' is scheduled to be $2.45 million.
They aren't releasing Jones yet because it tips their hand.
Question is, would you give up a 4th or 5th for Lynch when you've already lost your 3rd?
There's no reason to rush, but a 3-pronged attack of Forsett-Lynch-Leon would turn a position of weakness into a position of strength.
