Seattle Seahawks Are Getting The Band Back Together; Sign Marshawn Lynch And Robert Turbin

  • Injuries have devastated the Seattle Seahawks at running back.
  • To fill the void, the team has signed two former running backs, Robert Turbin and Marshawn Lynch.
  • Neither has played since late last season, but both will give the Seahawks some much-needed depth at the position heading into the regular-season finale.

When you experience the adversity that the Seattle Seahawks have in recent weeks, sometimes the best thing you can do is find a familiar place, a happy place. A happy place can give you some much-needed calm and serenity. It can help you get to a place where you can deal with life’s pitfalls.

In the absence of a place, a presence will do.

Monday evening, the news broke the Seahawks were bringing back one presence in former running back Robert Turbin. But fans continued to wait for information about the other guy the Seahawks were rumored to be bringing back.

Beast Mode; they were bringing back none other than Marshawn Lynch. The news finally broke late Monday night, making the rumors a reality—Marshawn Lynch is back in the NFL.

Filling The Void

With season-ending injuries to two running backs Sunday, Seattle found its stable sorely depleted. As a running team, well—it will be kind of hard to remain a running team with only one healthy running back.

Nothing against Travis Homer, but the rookie had just three career carries prior to entering the game Sunday against the Cardinals. While he could be capable and up to the task, it would be nice to have some depth and maybe even some proven talent.

Marshawn Lynch qualifies as the ‘proven talent,’ and Turbin provides the team with some much-needed depth.

As former players, both are already familiar with the team and the culture. Because of that, and assuming they have been working out, there is a reasonable chance they could contribute as early as this week against the 49ers.

What Can Fans Expect From Marshawn Lynch And Robert Turbin?

Neither has played since October 14, 2018. That was the last time…
